Six persons appeared in Magistrate’s Court yesterday morning for allegedly breaching COVID-19 curfew regulations.
John King and Andrew Hanley, who were charged for the same breaching incident from Sunday, March 28, both pleaded not guilty. Senior Magistrate the Worshipful Juan Wolffe adjourned their case until Monday, July 5 for directions and disclosure and released them on $2000 bail each until that time.
Teshae Davis also pleaded not guilty to breaching curfew on Boxing Day of last year. Magistrate Wolffe adjourned her case to July 5 as well for directions and disclosure and released her on $2000 bail.
Since lawyer Mark Daniels had filed a constitutional application in the Supreme Court regarding his client Kinte Smith’s alleged breach on Tuesday January 12, Mr. Smith was not required to enter a plea during this morning’s session. Magistrate Wolffe adjourned the case to Monday, July 19.
Tatem Ford pleaded guilty to breaching curfew on December 19 of last year, but told the court that he was checking on his grandmother whose home had no power at the time. Taking this into consideration, Magistrate Wolffe ordered that he pay a $1000 fine as opposed to the standard amount and gave Mr. Ford until Tuesday June 15 to pay it.
Warren Brown also pleaded guilty to breaching curfew on Saturday March 20 and was ordered to pay a $2000 fine by Tuesday June 15.
Kingston Darrell also pleaded guilty to breaching curfew on the same date and was ordered to also pay a $2000 fine by Tuesday June 15
