Too long on remand

The family of a 38-year-old man who spent four years on remand at Her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds on a murder charge before the charge was dismissed in September are planning to sue the Government and file an official complaint with various United States organizations. Even though the murder charge was dismissed against Earl Victor, he remains incarcerated on a robbery charge, but his relatives are saying that he should be given bail or freed because of the length of time he was on remand for the murder charge. Back in 2008, Victor was held by United States Customs and Border Protection after he attempted to enter the United States from Canada. He had skipped bail in Barbados a year earlier while on a robbery charge and United States authorities discovered that he was the subject of an Interpol lookout. Victor was deported to Barbados and charged by police with murdering Rodney Stanford in 2006.
