Two freed from Dodds
FOR THE FIRST TIME in almost 20 years, Peter Forde and Orlando Lorde are free men.
At exactly 10:46 a.m this morning, both men accompanied by their respective lawyers, stepped out of H.M.P Dodds for the final time and into the arms of tearful and overjoyed family members.
Forde and Lorde along with one other man were sentenced to 30 years back in 1999 for the 1995 rape and robbery of a minibus conductress in French Village, St Peter.
However, after successfully appealing to the Court of Appeal in 2002, their sentences were reduced to 25 years. (RB)
