Man accused of committing indecent act against another

“I never did commit such a crime,” was the plea yesterday of a St Michael man, charged with serious indecency.

George Lamar McLawerence of 7th Avenue, Skeete’s Road, The Ivy, allegedly committed the act against a 19-year-old man on September 28, 2008.

The trial, presided by Madam Justice Jacqueline Cornelius, began last week and heard testimony from a number of witnesses, including the alleged victim and his mother.

McLawerence is representing himself while Senior Crown Counsel Krystal Delaney and Crown Counsel Neville Watson are the prosecutors.

Cornelius will issue her summation tomorrow after which the jury will issue its verdict.

    @Earl Crichlow!!!!! his Constitutional Rights (if they are any in Barbados ) have been Grossly VIOLATED.

    It took 8 Years and & 7 Days, The Constitution calls for:-

    CHAPTER III

    PROTECTION OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS

    OF THE INDIVIDUAL

    Fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual

    3. Any person who is arrested or detained –

    a. for the purpose of bringing him before a court in execution of the order of a court; or

    b. upon reasonable suspicion of his having committed or being about to commit a criminal offense.

    and who is not released, shall be brought before a court as soon as is reasonably practicable; and if any person arrested or detained upon reasonable suspicion of his having committed or being about to commit a criminal offense is not tried within a reasonable time, then, without prejudice to any further proceedings which may be brought against him, he shall be released either unconditionally or upon reasonable conditions, including in particular such conditions as are reasonably necessary to ensure that he appears at a later date for trial or for proceedings preliminary to trial.

    My guess here is that in Barbados, 8 Years and 7 Days is Considered “as soon as is reasonably practicable”
