Minibus owner who assaulted driver gets bail
Businessman Ricky Roland “Owlie” Alkins has been granted $100 000 bail.
Justice Margaret Reifer gave her decision this morning after hearing an application made by Alkins’ attorney Kerrie Symmonds last Thursday.
A week ago, Alkins was found guilty of causing serious bodily harm to one of his minibus drivers, Stephen Larrier, on February 28, 2012. The complainant was hit in the face with a rock, after he came up $30 short of the $460 daily lease amount for the minibus.
The convicted man, 42, lives at Hannays, Christ Church.
The Crown was represented by Crown Counsel Krystal Delaney and acting Senior Crown Counsel Alison Burke.
Attorney-at-law Michelle Forde also appeared on behalf of Alkins.
