Trotman denies stealing $60 bag
Livingston McDonald Trotman will have to make another bid for bail, since the application he made Tuesday was denied.
The Storey Gap, Codrington Hill, St Michael resident appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court No 2 where he denied entering Alicia Tempro’s house as a trespasser and stealing a $60 bag belonging to her.
Sergeant Neville Reid opposed bail for the unemployed 46-year-old man, who allegedly violated the complainant’s home. The police officer pointed out that the accused Trotman had 29 priors, 23 of which fell under the Theft Act and 18 of which had been before the same court.
However, during his address to the court, Trotman spoke of being gainfully employed and being a diabetic. He also stressed that since coming out of prison he had committed no criminal offences.
The accused therefore asked Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to give him a chance and grant him bail with any conditions, and he would abide by them.
Bail was denied and Trotman was remanded to prison until August 8.
