A 43-year-old St Michael man, who pleaded not guilty to using threatening words against another man, was today remanded to Dodds prison after he was unable to provide a surety.
Shawn Christopher Inniss, of Prescod Bottom, Bank Hall, was charged with threatening Anderson Lynch on December 31, 2017.
It was alleged that on the day in question, Inniss told Lynch, “I ain’t frighten for you, if you come around me ah going juck you with this knife.”
However, when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick at the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, Inniss only admitted to having a 12-inch knife in his possession.
While pointing out that Inniss had eight other convictions, one of which was for a similar offence, Frederick ordered the defendant to pay the court $200 in one month for possession of the knife. However, having failed to produce a surety on the charge of using threatening words, Inniss was remanded until January 30, 2018.
