Adams gets $6,000 bail on wounding charge

A 48-year-old man facing a wounding charge has denied the allegation.

Paul Tom Adams of Clarke’s Avenue, Bayville, St Michael recently appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant accused of wounding Ricky Garner on March 29.

There were no objections to bail from prosecutor Station Sergeant Janice Ifill after Adams, a carpenter, entered a not guilty plea.

He was released on $6,000 bail after the two sureties he presented to the court were accepted by the magistrate.

However, as a condition of his bail, Adams must stay away from his alleged victim.

He returns to court on June 14.

In another case, this time before Magistrate Douglas Frederick, Shaw Stephen Marshall of Lot 80 Citrus Avenue, Lower Burney, St Michael had one of his three cases dismissed.

Marshall was accused of obstructing Police Constable Kevin Hinkson in the execution of his duties on June 2, 2015. That case was dropped when it was called up before the magistrate in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court recently, while Marshall was reprimanded and discharged on charges of having an offensive weapon, a knife, on Swan Street, The City without a reasonable excuse; and selling on the same street without a valid permit to do so.

He had pleaded guilty to those offences, which also occurred on June 2, 2015.
