Mother forced to pay up after son is jailed in Guyana

He’s out on bail in two courts in Barbados, but Kyle Chad Archer’s luck ran out in Guyana recently.

Now the mother of the #59 Bayview Avenue, Bayville, St Michael resident has to pay a hefty price to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, and she has only six months to do so.

Archer’s attorney Roy Hurley today appeared in court and informed Magistrate Douglas Frederick that the accused was in a Georgetown prison serving a four-year sentence, after he was caught smuggling drugs into Guyana.

Hurley said he received a call from a lawyer in that country that Archer had been arrested at the airport with cocaine strapped to his thigh.

“I was shocked,” the attorney said.

Archer’s mother told the court she was not aware that her son had left the country.

“He left home for school at the [Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic]. I didn’t know he was going away. He left dress for school, with school bag and all that, Sir, and that was the last time I saw him . . . October 6,” she said.

The mother went on to explain that she did not check her son’s whereabouts when she did not see him, as he has a young child with his girlfriend and usually slept there.

“I thought he was with his girlfriend . . . and she thought he was with me,” the mother added.

Hurley said Archer’s action was a “stupid move on his part”, as he had now left his mother to bear the burden.

“This mother standing surety and most mothers will do the same, but he took advantage of his mother [as] there is no way she can check on him 24-7,” the lawer said.

Archer was out on $10,000 bail, on a charge of having sexual intercourse with an underage girl.

His mother has six months to pay the court $5,000 of the total bail amount or she will spend three months in jail.

      Bail has conditions it is not just given.There are people who have been granted bail but yet in prison as they cant meet the conditions set out.

    Anne Ince once you sign bail for an accused your responsibility is to insure that he or she makes every court appearance and if they fail to do so you as the surety have to forfeit a portion or all the sum of the bail amount and if you fail to pay you can be jailed

      At the same time the fact that he can board a plane on his own means he is not a child and is capable of making his own decisions. For all we know the his behavior could have stemmed from the absence of his father since the article did not mention anything about him. Also, with him being an adult and already has a child why try to stop him from being part of the relationship or part of the child’s life?(sleep’s at the child’s mother’s house) At his age i thought it was a good thing that he made it through the pregnancy still being with the child’s mother. Anyway point being that i think we try to blame the parents for the way children turn out to quickly children from young ages make their own decisions with less knowledge of the possible outcomes, granted, but parents are not the single influence in their child’s life and negative things in most cases seem easier than what is right.

    @ Antonio Phillips – Griffith ‘Bsc’ I am sure it was a slip but i think you mean ‘ensure’.

    She knew this boy was trouble, but she thought having a child would have changed him. She agreed that she would take responsibility for his movements and present him to the court when required. Even after he was caught in Guyana and jailed she should have gone to the court herself and reported her son missing letting the court issue a warrant for his arrest.

    She knows better, but let her emotions lead her into this trap. Be assured whenever he returns here, is jailed and leaves Dodds he will be back under her roof. This former member of our uniformed services is a perfect example of wasted tax payers money in training. While I care for her, I cannot help but wonder what has happened to her brain in this whole scenario, it will only further affect her health. Mothers in this country wants to carry their children from the cradle to the grave even if it’s their own grave.

    Have no sympathy for this parent, thats why criminals is all around us , and they families know what is going…..
    This is serious food for thought ………………………….
    School boy or man out on bail from 2 courts , so this is a joke , is this a case of court 2 , not having a piece of paper with details which was sent by pigeons got lost……. ..
    He allegedly is the father of a child , where is this girl parents ..what kind of society we are encouraging…
    This is so seriously funny , he dress to go to school in barbados and end up in prison in Guiana ..
    Only the minos getting caught…….sad, sad…..

    So, you mean that from October neither mother or girlfriend still had no idea that he was not in the island ??? Hmmm, sound a bit weird to me. I hope things work out for the mother sake, and she would not have to spend the time for his crime.

    She have a son in jail in NYC for shooting a man in he head. And the son that lock up in Guyana was in the paper wen it happen I read it few months ago. You can feel fa these ppl cause it’s not the first time he get lock up. So if she can come up with the $5000 she will spend time to.

    He most probably is a nice boy who helps around the house and has never done anyone any wrong. You stood bail for him and you haven’t communicated since October 6th and neither you nor the mother of the child wondered why he didn’t give the young child anything for Christmas..

  16. Anton January 13, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    Excuses, excuses, excuses!!! I cannot imagine that she has not seen him since Oct 6 nor has his girlfriend and they both believed that he was at the other..What a poor excuse..If that is indeed their belief then they are both retarded..Am I to believe that there was no contact between the two of them at any time? How was his child being supported all of this time? Her excuse is a lame duck
