Bail for Coco’s alleged attacker

technician released on $10,000 bail

A 25-year-old technician was today granted $10,000 bail after appearing on a serious bodily harm charge.

Applon Ithamar Ishmael Parris, of Taitt’s Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael was not required to plead when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant this afternoon.

Parris is facing the indictable charge of causing serious bodily harm to Antonio ‘Coco’ Todd with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or do him some other serious bodily harm.

With no objections to bail, Parris, who was represented by attorneys-at-law Chanika Carrington and Angela Mitchell-Gittens, was released after the Bridgetown Magistrate accepted his surety.

However, he was warned to stay away from Todd and his property and to report to the Worthing Police Station every Wednesday before noon with valid identification.

He was also warned to stay away from Terry Richards, a complainant in a charge dating back to November 2015.

Parris returns to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on March 10 to face both charges.

    Lol justice system … So here goes you locked up a man on a first offence for stealing a can of cornbeef for years . A man was given bail for attempted murder and killed some one while out on bail . A guy was arrested for having a joint and this guy tried to disfigure a whole man and got bail. .. So weed carries more than a life ? And this guy have more charges? And yet you want to know what’s going on in society, like really ? I am not a lawyer but I have the basic common sense . So cornbeef vs attempting to cause harm. .. this is laughable

    People are being srnt to Dodds for far less serious crimes and you get bail. A low bail at that? Come on. The JUSTICE SYSTEM IN BARBADOS NEEDS TO BE SHAKEN. YOU GIVE SOMEONE BAIL AND THEY COME OUT AND COMMIT MURDER WHILE ON BAIL AND LAUGH GOING TO COURT. HANG THEM. HANG THEM. PUT THEM TO SLEEP.

    I hope all of you that are speaking talking about the system and to hang someone or put them to sleep don’t have children or any family member for that matter that for some reason or the other find themselves in that same situation or where they have to defend themselves from someone that troubled them and they end up attempting to kill the person or killed them. Cause you all would be singing a different time and I can bet that none of you have first hand information as to what took place, but judging. Thank God you all ain’t the judges and I am glad you all ain’t God.
