Special constable granted bail

todays courtSpecial constable Jimmy Thorne, who is accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice, was granted $10,000 bail when he appeared in the St Matthias Magistrates’ Court today.

The Coach Hill, St John resident also had his case adjourned until June 16 when he appeared before Magistrate Christopher Birch.

During the brief hearing, the magistrate pointed out that in cases such as the one brought against Thorne, which involved a breach of public trust, the matter would have to be referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions and heard in the High Court.

Earlier this month, the special constable; his brother Jamal Andre Thorne, a 32-year-old carpenter of Cherry Grove, St John; and Ross Ryan Ashton, a businessman who resides at Block 4D Rosemont, Deacons Road, St Michael, were charged in relation to the seizure of 10 pounds of marijuana and subsequently released on $35,000 bail after spending a week in jail.
