Not guilty of gun and ammo charge

Hazel Donna Greenidge yesterday shed tears of joy after she was freed of a gun and ammunition charge.

The hairdresser, of Block 11 B Bottom Close, Wildey, St Michael, had pleaded not guilty to illegal possession of a Glock 23 semi-automatic S&W .40 calibre pistol and seven rounds of ammunition, all on February 18, 2018. She was 46 years old at the time.

It took the nine-member jury about an hour and a half to return the unanimous verdict in the No. 3 Supreme Court.

Greenidge was represented by attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens, while State Counsel Romario Straker prosecuted.

In her unsworn statement yesterday before Justice Carlisle Greaves, Greenidge said: “I was never in trouble with the law, was never charged by police, nor do I have no convictions, sir.” (RA)
