A 30-year-old Vaucluse, St Thomas man was found guilty today of gun and ammunition charges, dating back ten years.
Julius Radcliffe Carter, who was 20 years old at the time, was charged with possession of a pipe gun without a valid licence, as well as three rounds of ammunition on October 20, 2008.
He had pleaded not guilty to the charge and went on trial in the High Court.
This morning a nine-member jury in the No.2 Supreme Court found him guilty on both counts.
Presiding Judge Randall Worrell revoked Carter’s bail and remanded him to Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds, pending a pre-sentencing report to be submitted by March 9, 2018.
Crown Counsel Oliver Thomas prosecuted the case while Dave Cumberbatch represented the accused. Over the course of the trial Justice Worrell heard evidence from seven people, including the accused.
