A 39-year-old mechanic/taxi driver, accused of committing 19 criminal offences, in three jurisdictions, is spending his first of many nights at HMP Dodds.
Calston Emanuel Sealy, of Odessa McClean Road, My Lords Hill, St Michael, got an automatic 28-day stay at the St Philip penal institution after appearing before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on Friday on charges, ranging from gun offences to theft and dating back to 2013.
Accompanied by his attorney-at-law Angella Mitchell-Gittens, the accused was not allowed to plead to the indictable charges of possession of a firearm and one round of ammunition on February 28.
It is also alleged that between December 29, 2013 and January 9, 2014, Sealy stole $650 cash belonging to Shadayne Shorey.
He is further accused of stealing $1,700 belonging to Clement Collymore as well $1,185. 90 via a Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited cheque made payable to him between April 5 and August 28, 2014.
Sealy seemingly took a break from his criminal pursuits, before allegedly striking again two years later. Between December 5 and 20, 2016 he is said to have stolen $6,746 belonging to Erickson Connolly via Bank of Nova Scotia cheques made payable to him.
It is further alleged that sometime between January 3 and 5, 2017, he stole $2,145 cash belonging to Shellyann Neal and between December 20, 2016 and February 3, 2017 that he stole $1,225 belonging to Erlinda Dear.
He is also accused of assaulting Shanell Lewis on April 27, 2017, as well as Demetri Gill on February 28 this year. On that same date, he is also accused of wounding Kerwyn Gill with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause serious bodily harm to him.
On the aforementioned charges he will reappear before Cuffy-Sargeant on May 18.
Before that, he is scheduled to appear before the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court on May 14 to answer a charge of theft of $12, 645 from Cornelius Francis between December 12, 2017 and January 30, 2018.
The following day, May 15, the accused will appear before the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court also on a charge of theft, but this time in the amount of $9,000 belonging to Donette Wharton Perry.
That offence allegedly occurred sometime between October 26 and 30, last year.
