A 67-year-old man, accused of buggery, will remain on remand at HMP Dodds after making yet another unsuccessful application for bail.
Winston Errol Bovell, of 144 Lodge Hill Terrace, St Michael, who has been housed at the St Philip penal institution since February 1, is accused of committing the act against a minor sometime between November 1, 2016 and January 28 this year.
When he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today, Bovell said he would like to make “a written application for bail”.
As the accused man removed a sheet of paper from the pocket of his shirt, the magistrate queried whether he had anything new to add to his previous applications.
“Yes, I have contracted bronchitis and I want to make a written application [for bail],” he revealed.
However, the magistrate informed him that the prison system would have the necessary systems in place to deal with his illness.
His bail was denied.
“I don’t understand this,” a visibly frustrated Bovell said as he was given a November 7 date to return to court.
