Lord Evil to know fate soon

Andre Omar Jackman, also known as “Lord Evil” or “Punchies”, will have to wait a little longer to know the outcome of a charge against him.

Jackman, 38, of Stroud Bay, Crab Hill, St Lucy, who had a murder charge against him thrown out earlier this year, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

He had two matters for assault and criminal damage dismissed in December 2016 by Magistrate Douglas Frederick. However, he still faced an indictable charge of unlawful violence towards Skii Sommerville, in such a way that it would cause another person of reasonable firmness at the scene to fear for their safety, on December 10, 2016.

He had been released on $5 000 bail.

After prosecutor Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim asked the court yesterday for a further adjournment, defence counsel Shadia Simpson argued that yesterday was in fact given as the final adjournment date for the matter.

“The court indicated if the prosecutor could give no indication where this case was going, the matter would be dismissed,” she submitted.

However, Pilgrim said there was a file, but it did not reach the office when it should have.

“My instructions are that the constable [dealing with the matter] is on vacation, and will return at the end of the month,” he told the magistrate.

Magistrate Frederick asked counsel to give the prosecutor a “few more days to get it sorted out”.

“The problem is that this has fallen through the cracks . . . . The man, who is to do what he has to, is on vacation, so work with the man,” he said, adding he had not written yesterday would be the final adjournment date.

But Simpson argued that the prosecution had six months to do what needed to be done.

“I am here and ready to work, Your Worship. I am sure my client remembered you said this would be the final adjournment date, and I wrote it down,” she said.

“I remember,” Jackman said from the dock.

Magistrate Frederick set a final adjournment date for July 10. (RA)
