Unemployed man wants trespassing matter dismissed
An unemployed 53-year-old St Michael man Tuesday asked whether the District “A” Magistrates’ Court would dismiss a one-year-old case in which he is accused of entering a building known as Kay’s House as a trespasser back on February 23, 2015.
However, Victor William Taitt, of Headley’s Land, Deacons Road, who previously pleaded not guilty and is representing himself in the case, admitted that he did not know how to go about the process.
“I have been coming here since last year and I want the matter dismissed,” he informed the court.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant informed the accused, who is currently on $5,000 bail, that he simply had to make an application from the dock.
“But I did not charge myself, mam,” Taitt replied, adding, “You will have to tell me not to come back, keep out of trouble and to keep the peace”.
Cuffy-Sargeant replied: “No. You will have to come back on your next court date which is August 16.”
Taitt was also told that he could make his application for the case to be dismissed on that date.
