Escapee turns himself in

After escaping from a Bridgetown Court yesterday afternoon, Chad Rommell Martin Williams was back in lawful custody today following 24-hours of freedom.

ESCAPEEWilliams appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Douglas Frederick and was not required to plead to the indictable offence of escaping lawful custody without the use of force on June 18, while being a prisoner and having been remanded to HMP Dodds.

Yesterday, the Beckles Road, St Michael resident walked out of the No. 2 Courtroom after appearing in the dock and denying three June 15 charges of obstructing, resisting and using abusive language towards Constable Philmore Hall.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant denied the 24-year-old accused man bail. Some time after being seated in the courtroom with other accused persons, Williams got up from his seat and went quietly toward the door. He was not handcuffed at the time.

A constable who was performing clerical duties in the courtroom apparently saw Williams just as he was about to exit and he quickly followed him. However, since he had several yards on the officer, Williams made good his escape.

It is understood that Williams turned himself in to police today, accompanied by attorney-at-law Romain Marshall.

    Young man I am very proud of you today, you did the right thing by turning yourself in. I don’t know what your crime was but if you approach the rest of your life in this way, life could so much better.

    Just placed himself in a position where there is the possibility that he can get three years straight off the bat for escaping lawful custody.

    Chad exchanged freedom for captivity, not being handcuff he took the opportunity to exchanged captivity for freedom. After serious thought, where am I going to hide? Common sense kicked in, NO one in Bim gine put me up. Oh Lord, I gine round in circles and ended up back where I started.

    So what is/wiil be the Punishment for the Fools that let him walk away from the Court ??? In Barbados!!!! None i guess, if he had been in restraints as he should have been, he would not have been able to go anywhere.
    What if he had walked away, and came back with the now very popular GUN and opened fire ???? What then ????, a lot of people are making jokes about this LAX system we have in Barbados, until something really bad happens.
    which i sincerely hope never does, but who really knows what could be ??

    You are wasting your time boy. At 24 you got a life ahead of you. Making a mess of it now ,would not bring you worthwhile gains. Matter of fact, an unsound character can hinder you in life. Take hold of you life , get a sound education and a skill. Do something constructive with your life, which would bring you great happiness and a peace of mind. One of the down falls in life is association with bad company, a negative attitude and people, and mingling with drugs and excessive sexual indulgence hinders educational development.
