Hollingsworth remanded to Dodds

Magistrate Elwood Watts today remanded a 23-year-old robbery accused to HMP Dodds, after a court prosecutor successfully argued he should not be out on bail.

Known offender Dario Arlington Hollingsworth of #42 Golden Rock, Pinelands, St Michael went before the Oistins Magistrate accused of assaulting Donnette Jones with intent to rob her on August 6.

He denied the offence but prosecutor Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett argued that Hollingsworth, who has 14 prior convictions – most of them for similar offences – was not a good candidate for bail.

He pointed out that the accused had matters pending in other courts.

However, in arguing for his release, Hollingsworth said those other cases had been in the system for the last three years and “nobody never showed”. He also informed Magistrate Watts that he had turned himself in to the police but needed his freedom, as he had the responsibility of taking care of his ailing mother.

Hollingsworth also tried to assure the magistrate that he would comply with all conditions imposed by the court if granted bail.

His application was denied and he was remanded to prison until September 21.

However, the unemployed man’s legal troubles did not end there. He still has to appear before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on August 30 to face three other criminal charges.

Hollingsworth is alleged to have entered the house of Monica Dohnert as a trespasser on August 7, armed with an axe, and stole $410 belonging to the homeowner.

He is also accused of robbing Marjorie Jordan of a US$30 handbag, a US$649 iPhone, a US$50 driver’s licence and US$400 in cash on August 12.

Akin Ross is said to have been Hollingsworth’s victim on August 9. The accused allegedly entered his house as a trespasser and stole a gold chain worth $1,000, two belts worth $600, a pair of slippers worth $275, a shirt valued $59.40, and US$815 belonging to Ross, as well as a pair of earrings worth $400 and US$80 belonging to Sueann Bowen.
