His blatant disrespect towards his father who stood as his surety cost a 21-year-old man his freedom today.
The surety withdrew as guarantor for the $10,000 bail for Shamar Shaquane Erwin Inniss, of 1st Avenue Prescod Bottom, Hindsbury Road, St Michael when the cases against him were called up in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
Inniss has been on bail for two criminal charges – that he on April 1, 2017 unlawfully and maliciously wounded Rouel Bostic and committed the same crime against Christopher Massiah on April 18, 2017.
He has maintained his innocence on both charges.
However, as the accused stood in the dock today his surety who is also his dad informed the magistrate that Inniss was being disrespectful to him. He also told his son that despite this, he was still willing to stand as surety if he agreed to enroll in a drug treatment programme. Inniss said he was not interested in joining such a programme.
His father withdrew as his surety which resulted in Inniss being remanded until June 11 as he had no one new to sign on his behalf.
