A 29-year-old man accused of placing the lives of four people in danger when he discharged a firearm in a public place almost three years ago, appeared in court for the first time today and is now on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds.
Kevin Adrian Jamar Sealy, of Sargeant Street, St John is alleged to have fired a gun along College Land, on June 3, 2017, without lawful excuse, which placed Rico Toppin, Akeem Blenman, Sario Savoury and Khadijah Jones, in danger of death or serious bodily harm.
He is further accused of using the firearm on the same day when he did not have a valid licence to do so.
Sealy was not required to plead to the indictable charges, which allegedly occurred in the District ‘C’ jurisdiction, when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today.
He was also not required to enter pleas to charges that he had a quantity of cannabis in his possession on April 10 in the same jurisdiction.
The accused is further charged with driving a motorcycle, registration number MV165, along Palmer’s Road on April 10 around 5 p.m., when he had no insurance and was not the holder of a driver’s licence.
Sealy allegedly gave police an incorrect name and address. The motorcycle also carried fraudulent number plates, it is alleged.
The unemployed man is also facing a charge of breaching the national directive requiring persons to remain indoors during the Covid-19 curfew. He was reportedly outdoors around 5 p.m. on the mentioned date and did not have a reasonable explanation.
All his cases have been transferred to the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court for hearing. Sealy will appear there on May 13.
