Bradshaw again!

Notorious prisoner back in jail

On Saturday March 12, 2016, Adrian Fitzgerald Peter Bradshaw declared he was moving “from prisons to prayers”.

Six months and seven days to the day, however, the 51-year-old murder convict is back at HMP Dodds, the place he called home for 30 years.

Today, law enforcement officials in precincts of Central Police Station and the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court were on full alert as Bradshaw, of Storey Gap, Codrington Hill, St Michael made his first appearance, along with his co-accused Brian Barry King, 30, of #18 Hillside Princess Royal Avenue, St Michael, on a number of serious charges.

Four armed Task Force officers secured the courtyard while almost a dozen officers — some in plain clothes and some in police uniform — stood guard, as Bradshaw and King were hustled out of two unmarked police vehicles and whisked up the steps of the District “A” No. 1 court.

They were brought before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on charges of possession of three firearms and 626 rounds of ammunition without a valid licence, as well as possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of 84 pounds of cannabis worth over $160,000.

The illegal items were reportedly seized at # 2 Blades Hill, St Philip on September 15, 2016.

Today, neither Bradshaw, who was dressed in a V-neck blue and white t-shirt, blue jeans and flip-flops, nor King, who wore a black and white shirt with red pants, was required to plead.

However, while King was represented by attorney Rasheed Belgrave in association with Linda Blackman, Bradshaw enquired of the magistrate: “Do I put in a request to have legal aid here, or when I go to court next?”

Frederick informed him that the request should be made at the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court before both men were ushered out of the courtroom just as fast as they came in and driven off to Dodds, where they have been remanded into custody until Thursday September 22 when they will go before District ‘C’.

The notorious Bradshaw, who had once terrorized Barbados in the 80’s along with infamous criminals Winston Hall and David Oliver, was previously incarcerated back in 1985 for the brutal murder of 74-year-old plantation owner Cyril Sisnett.

His release from prison earlier this year after spending three decades on death row had therefore created a national stir.

However, as he exited the gates of Her Majesty’s Prison for what was to be a final time as a prisoner last March, Bradshaw proclaimed that he had been touched by God while behind bars and that it was his intention to concentrate on helping the youth.

“It is my intention to help the youth of this country . . . but I need the assistance of the relevant officials, teachers and corporate Barbados,” he said immediately after his release into the warm embrace of his sister Roseta.

“And I leave here on this note: From prisons to prayers,” he said back then.

    Very respectful of the lawman’s privacy BT…but the Nation has him on the front page

    Jai Khan the Nation cares more about getting a story out FIRST, rather than logically thinking BEFORE they print. That’s why child porn could end up on their backpage….

    I wonder why Barbados Today decided not to picture the officers’ face with this particular convict

    it is high time just as in the days of old if being printed in the press that all officers escorting alleged criminals to and from court
    faces be conceal at all times

    Kudos to Barbados Today

    If the AG and the members of the mercy committee has any dignity, they would ALL tender their resignation immediately. But politics and money is the order of the day. self respect does not count. I cannot wait to see how this will pan out.

      remember the AG is not GOD. We all as citizens of Barbados have to make efforts to help stamp out all crimes and remember it all comes from the homes of those parents and guardians who will not instill discipline and send their children to Sunday school. So do not blame the AG.

    The AG/Mercy Committee will not take the blame here, they will just pass it on to a failed prison system.

    I am looking for innocent until proven guilty, does anyone know where I can locate him?

    Seems like he just up and disappeared.

    Cud write a comedy skit with this stuff….but it ain’t funny at all.
    Come to think of it, he could, legally, set up his own church in Dodds….tax-free too!!
    I wonder….Rum’n’Koke up to it?
