Labourer to spend Christmas in jail

A 29-year-old labourer, who pleaded guilty to robbery, will spend Christmas on remand at HMP Dodds.

Levi Kemar Damian Bourne, of Concrete Alley, St Michael, will know his fate when he returns before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on December 29 for sentencing.

Bourne admitted to robbing Glyne Catlyn of BDS$860 and US$150 cash on December 2.

The 67-year-old Catlyn ventured into Dukes Alley on Nelson Street on Sunday where he gave a friend $100. He was subsequently walking along the street when he was hit in the head and fell to the ground. When he looked up he saw Bourne, who allegedly said: “Come pass de money, pass de money”.

Fearing for his life, Catlyn handed over the cash before the accused, who was accompanied by another man, fled the scene.

Today Bourne, who was subsequently arrested, told the magistrate he pleaded guilty because he was at the scene, but insisted that he did not commit the crime.

“I was there but I did not push down the old guy,” Bourne said. He explained that he was on his way home from work when “foolish me” stopped and “the man was there over the old man and take the money and ran”.

He was remanded for sentencing following that explanation.

    He gave a friend $100 in Nelson Street.I am a fan of grammar and I just want to thank the prosecution, for the way in which it uses the craft.
