Photo credit: kirtok.comSteven Jno. Baptiste of Gallion was on Thursday denied bail by Magistrate Candia Carette-George for theft of a female’s underwear at Soufriere as well as charged with contravening a protection order.According to the facts presented at Court, the Defendant on “the 26th of December, 2011 at Soufriere, did steal one yellow panty and contravene a protection order dated 23rd June, 2011” contrary to the laws of the Commonwealth of Dominica, which he pleaded not guilty to.Police Prosecutor Inspector Claude Weekes objected to bail on the grounds that the Defendant continues to interfere with the complainant despite the protection order as well as to prevent the Defendant from potentially causing harm to the complainant.Magistrate Candia Carette-George told the Defendant that bail has been denied based on the alleged threat to the complainant. He was remanded in custody and will return on the 5th of January, 2012 when his bail application will be revisited.The trial date has been scheduled for the 25th of January, 2012.Meantime four men; Alton Eusebe of La Plaine, Sharmane Peter of Goodwill, Marvin Roberts of Mahaut and Mandella Gordon of Goodwill who were jointly charged on last week Friday for six firearm and controlled drug related charges will have to spend another week at the State’s Prison.Their application for bail was denied last week despite strong arguments presented by their attorneys on the grounds so as to allow the investigating officers time to carry out their investigations into the matter.They have therefore been remanded at the Dominica State’s Prison until the 5th of January, 2012 when their application for bail will be revisited.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweetlast_img
