Father admits wrongfully confining sons
THE FATHER OF two brothers who were freed from bondage yesterday has pleaded guilty to restraining them.
Bentley Webster Snr of Happy Cot Land, Mansion Road, Bank Hall, St Michael appeared in the Bridgetown Magistrates’ court today to answer two counts of wrongful confinement.
He was granted bail and will reappear in court pending a pre-sentencing report.
Webster’s 19-year-old son escaped from his chains yesterday and pleaded with neighbours for help. When police arrived, they found his 23-year-old brother who has special needs locked in a room. (YB)
