No more crime, says Kellman

COURT TODAY BLOCKAnderson Levere Kellman went before the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court on Tuesday to face five charges.

The 47-year-old, of #738 Kingsland Terrace, Christ Church, was not required to plead to a charge of rape which allegedly occurred on January 5 this year.

However, he pleaded not guilty to four other charges relating to two policemen; namely that on the same date, he resisted and assaulted officers Dave Harvey and Dwayne Rice in each instance.

Prosecuting, Sergeant Azel Skeete objected to bail for the accused, stating that the offences were serious and that Kellman already had 44 priors.

Society also needed to be protected from the accused, the prosecutor said.

Responding, Kellman admitted to the court that even though he had several previous convictions, including for burglary, since he came out of jail last year, he was determined not to get involved in crime again.

He explained that he has been in and out of jail for most of his adult life and the longest time he spent out of jail previously, was three months. He also referred to his current job at a fish market where he works for “a proper salary”.

“March coming would be a year since I get involved in burglary or in any trouble with the police,” he said. “I am 47 years old and I never get charge for rape before.”

Magistrate Christopher Birch eventually remanded the accused to HMP Dodds until February 8.

    He also referred to his current job at a fish market where he works for “a proper salary” Ok, I hear you, within reason everyone deserves a second chance.
    He had several previous convictions, including burglary, since he came out of jail last year, he was determined not to get involved in crime again.
    So what happened? The gentleman haven’t learnt that crime does not pay. If you break the law you will be caught and held accountable for your actions. Possible he had a poor up bringing (no excuse, in a bajan tradtional term he could of easily said, ‘I done wid that foolishness and keep out of trouble) or he chose the vagabond way of life, nobody can tell him what to do regardless. The best place for him is Dodds City to protect him from himself and the law abiding citizens.
