Lewis remanded to Dodds

COURT TODAY BLOCKHenry DePeiza Lewis left jail a week ago.

Last Friday, he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court to answer a charge of entering a woman’s house as a trespasser on January 18, with intent to commit rape.

Lewis, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

In his objections to bail, police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock submitted that the offence was a serious one, the public needed to be protected and the accused had antecedents.

Responding, Lewis explained that he was busy getting his business off the ground, accepting work proposals, and knew nothing about the charge.

“I left jail only last week,” Lewis told the magistrate.

“Within a week and your name get call?” Frederick queried.

“Yes, Sir . . . because my breadfruit hang low,” Lewis replied, while explaining that
he had just ended a one-year term imposed by the same magistrate, for theft.

The accused was remanded to HMP Dodds and will return to court on February 18.
