Bail and jail
fraud accused fails to secure his release
At one point Tyson Nathaniel Xavier sat in the courtroom of the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court with a smile on his face.
However, that smile had disappeared by evening as he was whisked onto the prison bus headed for HMP Dodds after failing to find someone to post his bail.
Xavier, 30, of #100 Chelsea Boulevard, Platinum Heights, Christ Church was earlier granted bail in the sum of $7,000 when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie
Cuffy-Sargeant today on three fraud charges.
However, after several failed attempts to contact his aunt to come and act as a surety, it meant that he had to spend the weekend in jail.
Xavier had earlier pleaded not guilty to forging a First Caribbean International cheque payable to Tyson Xavier, valued $199; with intent to defraud and that he knew the cheque to be forged and attempting to obtain $199 in Barbadian currency from First Caribbean International Bank by virtue of a forged instrument.
He will return to court on March 7.
