Absence of file leads to case dismissal
The absence of a file resulted in a robbery case being dismissed in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court today.
The matter had come up for hearing on several occasions, but when prosecutor Sergeant Derwin Thompson informed the court that he had done “all in his power” to get the file ready for today “to no avail”, Magistrate Wanda Blair threw out the case.
Nicholas Akeem Theo Shorey, 23, of 3rd Avenue Parris Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael; 19-year-old Shaquille Oneal Orlando Cumberbatch of #72 Golden Rock, Pinelands, St Michael; and Corey Fernando Greaves, 35, of Sheraton Park, Christ Church, had been the accused in the matter,
They were charged with robbing Jimmy Thomas of a $1,500 chain and a $350 watch on October 26, 2012.
