Wanted men jailed

Two accused of kidnapping and gun crimes among others

COURT TODAY BLOCKWanted men Ricardo Winfield Mayers and Pearson Omar Jordan have been sentenced to nine months behind bars.

Mayers, 30, of Bannister Land, Martindales Road, St Michael and 32-year-old Pearson Omar Jordan of no fixed place of abode today faced a total of 12 charges when they appeared in the District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court. However, they only pleaded guilty to one theft committed in St James, and it was for that crime that they were sentenced to jail time.

They are also accused of three other theft offences; one count each of robbery, kidnapping, unlawful use of a firearm and theft of use; and two counts each of aggravated burglary and endangering life.

They will reappear at several courts across the island on three consecutive days to answer the remaining charges, namely the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on April 15, District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court on April 16 and a day later at District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court.

Mayers and Jordan were caught last week at the Taylor’s Gap, Martindale’s Road, St Michael home of a 25-year-old woman, after being the subject of a police wanted bulletin.

That young woman, Clyesha Shamara Barnard, previously appeared in court on two charges of assisting the wanted men.

She was released on bail.

    So these grown men only know that they doing foolishness and that actions have consequences after they get before the courts. Stupidity at its best. I hope the other sentences don’t run concurrently.

      Not consolidating the prosecution of their various cases is bound to result in oversight and leniency. Collusion?

    Taxpayers’ money, time and resources being wasted taking them on tours of different Magistrates courts to deal separately with the various matters. This is foolishness on the part of the system as well, being a small place with a big backlog of other matters to be heard and no money to spend..

    If you read the article properly, you would have seen that the 9 months they have received is for the one charge they have pleaded guilty in. 11 more charges to face.. “They will reappear at several courts across the island on three consecutive days to answer the remaining charges”. Read please.

    This story is incorrect. They did not appear at District C. They go there next week.

    The court system is ridiculous. Those are very serious offences, 9 months will past very quickly. Does the court understand the serious psychological effects these acts have on the victims and future victims of such crimes. These guys will be out in a blink of an eye to continue their evil ways. No one or system is capable of reforming them in 9 months (that is crazy, the criminals are laughing at all of us).
