Assault and drug accused get bail
Several people who appeared before a Bridgetown magistrate were granted bail Thursday.
John Joseph Reeves, 31, of Odessa McClean Road, My Lords Hill, St Michael, who had been on remand since late August, had the shackles removed after a successful plea for bail.
He is charged with damaging a sash window belonging to Mahmed Hans on August 22 and assaulting Dwight Hunte on the same day, occasioning him actual bodily harm.
He has maintained his innocence in the matter.
“We don’t want to hear any more allegations . . . . Stay away from the people,” Magistrates Douglas Frederick warned as he granted Reeves bail in the sum of $3 000 with one surety.
He returns to court on January 23, 2017.
Tanileah Tahliah Lashley will also return to court on that date.
She is accused of assaulting Shaneil Francis on October 16.
However, the 20-year-old of 2nd Avenue Bird’s Raven, Deacons Road, St Michael pleaded not guilty to the offence. With no objections to bail, she was released on $2 000 bail.
Also granted bail Thursday was Jamar Ganesh Nervais who pleaded not guilty to possession of cannabis.
The 31-year-old Bartlett’s Tenantry, Sargeant’s Village, Christ Church resident was allegedly in possession of the illicit drug earlier today.
Nervais was charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of $130 worth of cannabis.
He was released on $2 500 bail and will also return to court on January 23.
