Accused jailed in St Lucia, case set for next year

Social Share

An almost decade-old case was saved from being dismissed after two prosecutors intervened yesterday.

The surety for Lamar Ashley Spooner, 30, of 1st Avenue Pool Land, St John, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court, sitting at the Cane Garden Complex, St Thomas, to inform of his whereabouts.

The woman, his mother, told Magistrate Manilla Renee that her only child, who was 20 at the time, and who had pleaded not guilty to stealing an $800 chain and a $3 000 pendant belonging to Anthony Bernard in 2012, was not in the island.

When the magistrate asked her if Spooner had permission to leave the jurisdiction, she said he was in St Lucia where he had been incarcerated on drug charges for about the last three years. (RA)
