Evidence on hold in Senator’s case
For the second consecutive day, no evidence was led in the trial of two young men accused of robbing Government Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner of a cellular phone in October 2011.
Legal arguments were again heard by Justice Olson Alleyne when the case continued in the Supreme Court No. 5 today.
Reneko Jamal Taylor, 22, of Block 5F Division Drive, Eden Lodge, St Michael and Jermaine Julia Andre Worrell, 23, of Hinds Hill, Cave Hill, St Michael have both denied the charge.
Worrell has also pleaded not guilty to an additional count of unlawful wounding.
Principal Crown Counsel Elwood Watts is prosecuting the matter in which Taylor is being represented by attorneys-at-law Marlon Gordon and Saffiya Moore, while Kendrid Sargeant is appearing for accused Worrell.
On Monday afternoon, soon after Sergeant Alwyn Austin began giving his evidence, the jury retired so that defence counsel Sargeant could make legal submissions. Those continued today.
