Robbery accused appears in court

A 23-year-old who appeared in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court last week on an assault charge made his first appearance in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on robbery charges today.

Dario Arlington Hollingsworth of #42 Golden Rock, Pinelands, St Michael, who is currently on remand at HMP Dodds, went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick accused of three offences.

He was not required to plead to the indictable charge that he allegedly entered the house of Monica Dohnert as a trespasser on August 7, armed with an axe, and stole $410 belonging to the homeowner.

But he told Magistrate Frederick he was not guilty of the charge that he robbed 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.

Hollingsworth also denied entering Akin Ross’ house as a trespasser on August 9 and stealing 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.

He remains on remand and will make a second appearance before the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrate on September 26.

    Some people smile because they are nervous and shame and they smile to stop from crying.when he is alone he will let the tears fall.Jail is no picnic but they have some place to sleep food to eat and other people like themselves who they know understand their situation.I am sure this young man have a drug problem so he has to steal to get his drugs. That smile on his face might be a cry for help.No one wants they freedom taken away but if you can’t help you situation and society can’t help you,then you try helping your self by crime.life is not easy when you don’t have a job.

    I will say it again……there seems to be a convention going on at Dodds…….these guys don’t go out and do Hard Labor anymore????…….years ago we use to pass the prisoners in Waterford working in the hot midday sun, haven’t seem them there in years, the roads overgrown with bush and the potholes want patching, if the prison is under staff, let the BDF go out with these guys.

      years ago they did that and we are here now so it obviously didn’t work. I swear Bajans think increased negativity and harder punishment are solutions. Never were and never will be.
