Blackman gets bail for assault charge

A 44-year-old man was granted bail Tuesday afternoon after appearing before a Bridgetown Court on an assault charge.

Don Alvin Blackman of Field’s Gap, Greenfield, St Michael is accused of unlawfully assaulting Corey Knight on July 12 last year.

He told Magistrate Douglas Frederick he was not guilty of the charge.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock objected to bail for the accused based on his antecedents, the need to protect society and the fact that Blackman was already out on bail for another offence.

However, the prosecutor’s application was denied after Blackman put forward his own arguments.

He was released on $4 000 bail after the magistrate accepted his surety.

As a condition of his bail release, Blackman must report to Central Police Station every Wednesday before 10 a.m., with valid identification.

He returns to the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on June 9.

    I want these politicians to amended the laws in parliament, that when a person is already on bail and they commit a second offense. No bail. These are things that they should be doing. All of them only looking out for things that is benefiting them, because some of these people know that they can get bail that is why they ;doing so much crime. That is what their lawyers telling them. Some lawyers like when the crimerate is high so that they could get more work. It is a business. That is why when some of them play they talking about crime i just say look another fraud.
