St Michael man transferred from ‘Mental’ to Dodds

A 50-year-old man, charged with an indictable offence, has been transferred from the Psychiatric Hospital to Dodds Prison.

Junior Abraham Stephen Roberts, of Stuarts Land, Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael, was not required to plead to the charge that he inflicted serious bodily harm on Phillip Stuart on July 1, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him.

On his first appearance before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court back in September he was remanded to the Black Rock mental institution for two weeks, but doctors there requested a further three weeks on his second appearance before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

When he returned to court today, the report was not in his favour, suggesting that he needed to be in a controlled environment so his behaviour could be kept under observation.

As such, Cuffy-Sargeant informed Roberts that he would be remanded to the St Philip penal institution, where he would continue to attend mental health clinic — an announcement that led to sobs from his mother.

Roberts returns to court on December 19.
