Dad on multiple theft charges denied bail

Kevin Ryan Cornibert will spend another two weeks on remand at Dodds Prison despite a “forceful” bail application from his attorney Mohia Ma’at.

The 38-year-old Fairfeild Cross, Tudor Bridge, St Michael resident has been held at the St Philip penal institution for almost two months despite denying that he trespassed into the home of Bresford Davis on July 10 and stole $170 and £$10.

Ma’at urged Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to look “favourably” on his client as he had missed out “on the entire summer vacation with three children”.

“He plays a pivotal role in the children’s lives [and] what bothers him the most is his inability at this time of year  . . . to do his fatherhood duties . . . when the children have to go back to school,” Ma’at explained.

However, the magistrate said while she understood Cornibert’s position her concern was that he had similar matters in her No.2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.

“He was on a hiatus, but yet he is back here. Yes, he is concerned about his children but the main fear of the court is that if he is granted bail he will reappear on another charge,” Cuffy-Sargeant said, adding that the accused man had missed two court dates in the past.

She further explained that she was not inclined to grant bail at this stage “given the hype in town with shopping and a lot of activity going around”.

Cornibert, a labourer, is also charged with robbing Bentley Mullen of $400 in May 2016, as well as Rawle Demattos of $350 in April 2013, and stealing $62 from Victor Johnson.

He returns to court on September 20 when Ma’at is expected to make another bail application.

    It should also be noted that the cash stolen was there to play a pivotal role in the other gentleman’s role as father, grandfather, uncle to buy back school items…So 6 is still half dozen. A good father would take along the children and clean up someone’s yard and they would bag the garbage and still spend ‘quality time’…Lawyer you talking a load of poppycock.
