No bail for wanted man
THERE WAS no bail for the Englishman who is wanted in Britain on rape and buggery charges.
Erskine Wilmark Price will spend another week on remand at HMP Dodds until his next court appearance on Friday.
Price, of Salters, St George, is accused of four counts of having sexual intercourse with a girl under 13 and buggering the girl, between February 22, 1992 and November 1, 1993.
Steve Gollop, who appeared for Price, applied for bail.
He said he had received the bundle of documents and bail could be granted with any number of strict conditions.
The attorney also asked that the matter be adjudicated speedily.
Director of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock, QC, who appeared on behalf of the British government, said as far as he knew the wanted man did not have a passport and was here illegally.
“We will ask that the status quo remains the same,” the DPP asked.
Magistrate Christopher Birch remanded Price until Friday.
