Davino Shakell Howard can consider himself lucky not to have spent the night
Howard, 24, of Foul Bay, St Philip, was granted bail after he pleaded not guilty to assaulting Lamar Wilkinson on April 28, 2018, occasioning him actual bodily harm.
And while there was no objection to bail by the prosecution, Howard had failed to provide a surety by the time the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court had closed for the day.
However, instead of remanding him, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant ordered him to return to court tomorrow.
“If you do not come to court tomorrow I will issue a warrant for your arrest and when you come to court you won’t be getting any bail,” she warned.
“Yes ma’am. I will be here at 9 o’ clock tomorrow morning sharp,” was Howard’s reply before rushing out of the courtroom.
