Man released on $1 500 surety
Call it a miraculous recovery.
Seven months after Dario Arlington Hollingsworth claimed he could not walk and had to be lifted in and out of the court, the accused walked, without even a limp, handcuffed and shackled into the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
And he opted to change his plea as well but will be sentenced next week when he returns to court.
Hollingsworth, 24, of Henry’s Lane, St Michael, was accused of entering Heather-Dawn Scott’s house, on November 2, 2017, and stealing United States and Barbadian money, two passports and identification cards, all worth $1 094, belonging to Scott and Elizabeth Skeete. Yesterday, he pleaded guilty but will return on June 27.
Last October, Hollingsworth was released on bail after he told Magistrate Douglas Frederick that he had been “diagnosed with a disease” which left him with weakness in his legs and the inability to control his bodily functions. (HLE)
