A surety has had to forfeit $3,000 for an accused’s non-appearance in court on a 2011 wounding charge. However, that has not stopped Earthon Robert St Cyr from continuing his absconding ways.
The Denton Road, Grazettes, St Michael resident appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today after failing to attend court for sometime.
He informed Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that he was out of the jurisdiction in Canada even though he was not given permission to travel. He also admitted that the magistrate had not informed him that the case in which he is accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Hugh Holder on June 2, 2011 had been dismissed.
That explanation was not acceptable to the magistrate who remanded St Cyr to HMP Dodds until March 18.
His surety will also be warned to appear in court at that time.
