Slinger pleads not guilt to theft

Veteran NATION journalist Timothy McDonald Slinger is facing a burglary charge.

He appeared before acting Magistrate Alliston Seale in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today where he pleaded not guilty to the offence.

Several journalists were on hand in a show of support for their 62-year-old colleague who resides at Bartletts Tenantry Road, Sargeants Village, Christ Church.

Today the Nation newspaper’s Managing Editor Tim Slinger (right) was surrounded by colleagues as he appeared in court.

He is charged with entering De Diva Hype Bar sometime between March 10 and April 15 and stealing liquor worth $2 361 belonging to Jacqueline Proverbs.

The items included 139 beers, 15 bottles of brandy, 12 bottles of whiskey, four bottles of vodka, 13 bottles of wine and two bottles of Irish whiskey.

The prosecutor, Sergeant Neville Reid, did not object to bail.

Slinger was granted $5 000 bail and the matter adjourned until May 6. He was represented by attorneys-at-law Ralph Thorne QC, Andrew Pilgrim QC and Ezra Alleyne.

Thorne told the court that the matter arose out of a dispute between landlord Gray ‘Doc’ Brome and his tenant who was in arrears, and Slinger was assisting him.

He also said he expected the matter to be settled.

On Monday, Slinger’s co-accused, Don Winfield Harper, appeared in the same court and pleaded not guilty.

Harper, 27, is from Richmond Gap, St. Michael.

The public service vehicle operator was remanded until May 18.

    I agree with you Luther Legends. TWO BARBADOS’. SEALE IS AN UNFAIR ACTING MAGISTRATE. If this is your way of presiding I am hoping you NEVER get appoint a magistrate.
