Borman on bond for theft

courtA 44-year-old man was Thursday placed on a 12-month bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, after admitting to theft.

Appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, Andy Borman, who is listed as having no fixed place of abode, pleaded guilty to stealing a cellular phone worth $60, a handbag worth $150, a bottle of water worth $2 and $150 in cash belonging to Catharina Brewster on October 31.

The facts presented by police prosecutor Sergeant Janice Ifill were that Brewster was walking along Jemmotts Lane, St Michael when she felt a tug on her bag. She was still holding on to the bag when she turned and saw a man who held a cutlass raised above his head. He told her: “Give me the f****** bag.” Brewster became fearful and handed the bag over to the man and later reported the matter to police.

Borman was later identified but the property was not recovered.

If Borman breaches the bond imposed by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, he will have to pay the court $1,500 forthwith or spend three months in prison.

    Stop this semi-literate Americanism. He is not on bond, he is on bail.

    On bond or on bail
    There is a difference between bond and bail. Defendants who immediately secure their release with money are bailed out. Defendants who secure their release with collateral (property or a promise to pay) are bonded out.

    This is my understanding of the difference.

    WHo cares whether a criminal is on bond or bail? The end result is basically the same. The offender is out and is free to commit more crimes until he is caught again .Forget this Politically correct bull dung,the general public just want to be protected from these low class predators.
