A 24-year-old man, who allegedly escaped police custody while being charged for an offence, has been remanded to prison.
Rodney Darian Clarke, of 6B Bottom Close, Wildey, St Michael, was not required to plead to the charge of sending the menacing message, “I gine kill you. Everyone in the Pine will know me. It gonna be war”, via computer to Shameka Blanche on April 26.
The offence allegedly occurred in the District ‘B’ jurisdiction. He is therefore due to appear before the magistrates’ court there on May 31 to answer the charge.
Today Clarke was also not required to plead to the offence of escaping police custody along Constitution Road without the use of force on May 16.
However, Prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons objected to his bail based on the strengthen of the evidence against him and the need to protect Blanche from the accused as there was already another matter pending before the court pertaining to the alleged victim.
“I don’t have a computer. I ain’t message nobody because I ain’t got no computer. I feel frustrated, I trying to get my little girl,” Clarke said in his application for bail, which was denied.
He returns before the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on June 26.
