PSV operator ordered not to go near his accusers

A 63-year-old public service vehicle (PSV) operator, accused of issuing threats and assaulting three people, including entertainer Ishaka McNeil, has been released on bail.

Clyde Stanfield Phillips of Philips Road, St Stephen’s Hill, Black Rock, St Michael, pleaded not guilty to five charges when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No.1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Wednesday.

It is alleged that on July 20, 2017, Phillips unlawfully assaulted Tamika Newton and that five days later he repeated the same offence against Newton as well as McNeil and Lyndonna Bynoe. On that same date, he also allegedly told Bynoe, “I gine chop you up”.

Prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock made no objection to bail but requested that the defendant be made to stay away from the virtual complainants.

Before granting the prosecutor’s wish, Frederick took note of the number of people making the allegations.

“How all these people say you assault them?” he asked, before releasing the accused on $3,000 bail with one surety.

Phillips is scheduled to return to court on October 25, 2017.

“Make sure and stay far away from the complainants,” the magistrate warned.

    The granting of the bail bout here is the problem. The defence lawyers sweet talking the magistrates and the judges.

    Fedup it has nothing to do with sweet talk. Everyone is entitled to bail unless the offence is a capital one where you have to apply to the high court.

    Also unless there is a chance that the accused would flee the country or perhaps is already on bail.
