Back to jail

Alleged burglar fails to make bail

Burglary accused Dario Arlington Hollingsworth, who says he is unable to walk, was offered $10,000 bail today.

However, the 23-year-old, Henry’s Lane, St Michael resident was unable to present a suitable surety when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.

He was therefore remanded again to HMP Dodds until January 4.

Hollingsworth who was wheeled to the steps of the court, then carried into the building by another inmate, is charged with entering the house of Heather-Dawn Scott as a trespasser on November 2.

While there, he is alleged to have stolen a $150 bag, US$300, BDS$100, two passports and two Barbados identification cards.

He pleaded not guilty to charge when he first appeared before Cuffy-Sargeant on November 6 but was remanded to prison following strong objections from the prosecutor.

    He will soon walk. All that is tricks. The longer you stay in jail the sooner you will walk.

    Look Keisha.

    The 23-year-old, of No. 42, Golden Rock, Pineland, St Michael, explained that he had received “a lash” to the back while out in society and that he had also been “diagnosed with a disease”.
    He said the conditions had resulted in weakness in his feet and his inability to control his bodily functions.
    Ruling that it was best to err on the side of caution, Magistrate Douglas Frederick granted Hollingsworth bail.
    “Your people will have to deal with you [as] you are more a burden on the prison. It’s best to err on the side of caution and get rid of that liability,” the magistrate said.

    He walked into the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court back in August to answer a number of charges under the Theft Act.
    However, it was a wheel chair-bound Dario Arlington Hollingsworth who left the court today on $3,000 bail.

    That was in October.

  13. Carson C Cadogan December 5, 2017 at 5:53 am

    Why is he unable to walk??

    We are seeing a lot of these photos these days of suspects injured while in police custody.

    The Bajan press refuses to investigate and publish information.
