Bail for two, freedom for one
In three separate cases heard in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Thursday, two men were granted bail while the other had a charge dismissed.
Glen Dacosta Howell, 42, of Cheshire, St John is accused of using the threatening words “You know I would blow off your head” towards Gladstone Leacock.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
With no objections from the police prosecutor Howell was released on $1 500 bail, which he secured with one surety.
Howell, who returns to court on January 16, 2017, was also warned to stay away from the complainant.
Eden Alphonso Reid, 53, of Crichlow Land, Wavell Avenue, St Michael was also granted $2 000 by the magistrate.
Reid, who was on remand, first at HMP Dodds and then at the Psychiatric Hospital, has denied damaging two tyres belonging to Ronnay Worrell on July 26.
His bail was granted on condition that he stay away from the complainant as well as the complainant’s property.
In the third case, Meshech Omani Lewis, 23, of Block 15F Crest View Terrace, Eden Lodge, St Michael walked out of Cuffy-Sargeant’s court a free man.
This was after the complainant in his matter informed the court that he was no longer interested in proceeding with the case.
Lewis had been accused of stealing a cellular phone, valued $1 500 and belonging to Kemar Maynard, on October 4.
He was ordered to pay $200 in cost to the court by October 28.
Meantime, Danrade Wayne Moist was also freed by another court of a charge.
Moist, 26, of 8th Avenue New Orleans, St Michael, was accused of assaulting a woman on March 17, 2013 with intent to rape her.
However, when the matter came up for hearing before Magistrate Douglas Frederick today, the complainant informed the court that she no longer wanted to proceed with the matter.
The magistrate therefore dismissed the case.
