Wilkinson out on $1.5m bail
Businessman Rodney Levi Wilkinson is back home today.
After being granted $1.5 million bail two weeks ago, Wilkinson was forced to remain in custody at HMP Dodds as he sought suitable sureties.
Yesterday, two sureties, one of whom is a wheelchair user, presented themselves to the No. 2 Supreme Court and, around midday, the 59-year-old walked out in the company of one of them and attorney Marlon Gordon.
His next court date is January 27 in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.
Wilkinson, of Friendly Hall Development, Jackmans, St Michael, and owner of two luxury car businesses, is accused of dishonestly obtaining close to $4 million, in 67 charges of fraud, through his companies Executive Rentals and Premium Pre-owned Vehicles Inc., from Globe Finance and Nassco Finance Ltd, between 2013 and this year.
