Sixty-four-year-old Errol Vivian Jones will not be extradited to Canada.
Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch handed down his ruling in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court this morning.
The Bridgefield, St Thomas resident was granted full parole, after serving a portion of his time in a Canadian prison on two drug charges committed on November 11, 1991 and August 31, 1994.
He allegedly failed to comply with the conditions of the parole by failing to check in with the parole office on the given date.
This resulted in a warrant being issued by the Canadian Correctional Services for Jones’ arrest as he still had 889 days remaining to serve on his sentence.
