A 36-year-old man, who has been on remand at
Dodds prison, is spending his first night at home in almost a year.
Trevor DaCosta Hurdle, of 3rd Avenue, Ivy, St Michael, who had been housed at the St Philip penitentiary since July 17 last year, was granted $10,000 bail today.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant released Hurdle into the care of his surety after sounding a warning that he was “high risk” since he was already on bail for several other charges.
Hurdle now has to report to Central Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday before noon with valid identification and stay away from all the complainants involved in the matters he has pending before the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court.
He is accused of trespassing at Carol Abrams’ home on July 13, 2017, with intent to inflict serious bodily harm on the homeowner and Jewel Johnson.
It is further alleged that he had sexual intercourse with a woman without her consent, as well as
forcibly removed Odessa Punch from Chase Road, Halls Road, St Michael, without her consent on the aforementioned date.
Hurdle is also charged with possession of two forged $100 notes on July 14.
The accused, who returns to the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on August 13, was not required to plead to any of the indictable offences.
