Man who found gun freed after appeal upheld

Social Share

A MAN WHO was serving a seven-year jail sentence covered his face with his hands and cried briefly yesterday as the Court of Appeal set him free.

Calston Emmanuel Sealy, 36, sentenced in mid-2010 for having a .25-calibre pistol and two rounds of ammunition, appealed the sentence a year ago, claiming then and at trial that he had found the gun and bullets, and was on his way to hand them into the authorities when police officers stopped him.

Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, flanked by Justices of Appeal Andrew Burgess and Kaye Goodridge, told the former mechanic known as “Bedroom Bully”, of Shop Hill, St Thomas, that he would not spend another day in prison and would be released from HMP Dodds by the end of business yesterday.
