Different fates for men in their 50s

Two Christ Church men in their 50s faced the Oistins Magistrates’ Court Tuesday charged with separate offences.

But while Richard Anderson Moseley, 54, of Sayes Court was granted his freedom, Peter Rudolph Gay, 58, of #44 Hillside Terrace in Gall Hill was not so lucky.

Moseley, a surfing instructor, is charged with assaulting Michael Batson on December 14, occasioning him actual bodily harm.

He pleaded not guilty to the offence before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale, and with no objection from the prosecutor, Moseley was released on a $5,000 bail.

However, he was warned not to leave the jurisdiction without first getting the permission of the Oistins Criminal Court. The same applies if he wants to travel.

Asked whether he knew the complainant, Moseley answered: “We were supposed to be friends but I don’t know what happen.”

“Stay away from the complainant,” the magistrate replied.

Moseley returns to court on March 13, 2017.

Meanwhile, Gay will spend the holidays behind bars at HMP Dodds.

He pleaded not guilty to stealing BDS$150 and US$10 belonging to Philip Knight on December 9.

In arguing for his release Gay told the magistrate he would like to spend Christmas with his children.

However, Seale denied his bail application and remanded Gay to prison until January 12, 2017.

    Remanded for allegedly stealing $160? This is medieval barbarism. His lawyers should have taken this to the high court for review. Where are the defence lawyers? There was no violence involved.

    Do we know all the facts? Does gay have antecedents. has he been charged with stealing before? is he a regular in the court?

    none of this was reported. Those things are usually taken into consideration when granting bail.

    I am sorry to say but I always said life is not so important has money. You try to kill someone you serve less than if you steal money. I think that the other should be in Dodds and not the one who is going in to Dodds.
