The absence of police files led to three separate cases being dismissed in the District “A” Magistrates Court yesterday.
Kadeem Pierre Holder, of #18 York Terrace, Pinelands, St Michael walked out of the No 1 Court free of an assault charge dating back to September 2011.
He was accused of assaulting Olwyn Taylor.
Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick also dismissed the case against George McDonald Brathwaite when he made his court appearance.
Brathwaite of Hunte’s Street, Baxters Road, St Michael was charged with assaulting Albert John and occasioning him actual bodily harm on April 25, 2013.
He was out on $3,000 bail since he appeared in court three years ago.
Also appearing before Frederick were Rai Romario Thorpe of Deanes Village, St Michael; Tyrell Lamar Devere Hinds of 3rd Avenue Deanes Village St Michael and Ramon Samuel Cox of 1st Avenue, Deanes Village, St Michael.
They were charge with entering Joanne Browne’s house as trespassers between August 19 and 20, 2013.
The trio were accused of stealing a television set valued at $1, 000; a home theatre system valued $1, 400; two pairs of earrings worth $700; a bracelet set worth $200, an anklet worth $190; a bracelet valued at $300; a $150 ring; a $1, 400 cellular phone; a cologne worth $190 and a bicycle valued at $1,000.
That case was also dismissed because the prosecutor had no file in hand.
