Springer wants case thrown out

COURT TODAY BLOCKMagistrate Douglas Frederick today refused to give accused George Stephenson Springer personal bail or to throw out his case.

However, he assured Springer that if he could secure someone to stand as surety for him, he would consider granting him bail when he returns to court next month.

Springer, 54, of Chapman Village, St Thomas has been on remand for some time. He is charged with four April 2014 counts of fraud involving large sums of money, with one of them being $100 000.

If not personal bail, Springer asked the court to then consider an “acquittal” since “the prosecution is unable to proceed any further”.

Magistrate Frederick explained that the case “was not ripe for dismissal” at this stage and asked the prosecution to make every effort to get the file ready since he cannot “keep him in prison all the time”.

Springer’s case was adjourned until November 24.
