Clarke to be granted bail
Andre Jamal Clarke’s particulars have been verified and he should be granted bail later this week, once his outstanding $2, 000 fine is paid.
Last Friday, Clarke of Scarborough, Christ Church went before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale at the Oistins Magistrates Court where he pleaded not guilty to using threatening words towards Antoinette Roberts on July 20.
Clarke was remanded to prison after Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett told the court that he had no objections to Clarke being granted bail in the current matter. However, the accused had an outstanding matter at the District ‘A’ Court for which he was on bail.
Furthermore, he had not paid the $2, 000 fine imposed on him by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant last month for a drug offence.
While Clarke recalled having an outstanding matter relating to an offensive weapon, his mother said the offensive weapon matter had been dealt with and Clarke had been given probation in relation to the charge.
Today, when the accused man returned to court this morning, his probation was verified and he was offered bail.
Clarke’s mother promised that the fine would be paid by Thursday.
