A Fairfield Crossroad, Tudor Bridge, St Michael resident was remanded to prison until August 9, after appearing before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant accused of breaking into a house two days ago.
Kevin Ryan Cornibert is charged with entering the dwelling home of 78-year-old Bresford Davis as a trespasser on Tuesday, and stealing cash and items valued at $230.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge and prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons objected to bail.
Gibbons asked the court to take into account the seriousness of the crime of which Cornibert is accused, the age of the complainant, and also pointed out that the accused had missed his last court date in another matter.
“I fear that if you grant him bail, he will not surrender himself to this court,” Gibbons stressed.
Amidst strong protest from the accused, who insisted that he had kept all of his court appointments, Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant granted the prosecution’s request.
“We keep records here, Mr Cornibert, and I am going by my records,” she said.
