Dodds now home to Cox

A 24-year-old man, of no fixed place of abode, will call HMP Dodds home for the next nine months.

Chad Widmark Cox was remanded to prison in early June after pleading not guilty to entering Nicholls House as a trespasser with intent to steal.

However, after spending 28 days at the St Philip penal institution he returned before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on June 29 and changed his plea to guilty.

In court today Frederick heard that the caretaker at Nicholls House at Philadelphia, St Michael had secured the building, but had received a call from the police the following day informing him that a window on the third floor had been broken.

Investigations were launched and
Cox was detained by police and later admitted to committing the offence. He apparently climbed the three-storey building and made his way in through the window.

In another case heard by Frederick, 35-year-old Rasheed Dwain King was released on $7,000 bail after making his first appearance in court today.

The #17 Husbands Crescent, St James resident denied that he dishonestly assisted in withholding a car worth $30,000 belonging to Allison Benny-Lodge for the benefit of another person, knowing or believing it to be stolen.

King was not required to plead to the indictable charge, which allegedly occurred sometime between November 7, 2016 and June 30, this year.

With no objection to bail he was spared a period on remand after the magistrate accepted his surety.

The accused man returns to court on October 2.
