St Michael resident Dario Delisle Flatts, remains on remand at Dodds even though he was offered bail.
That’s because the 23-year-old groom from Block I2 Field Place, Bayville has to reassure the court of his new address.
Station Sergeant Crishna Graham submitted that Flatts, who is facing three criminal offences, should relocate from his current address.
And although he had someone, who was accepted by the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, to sign the $8 000 bail offered to him, the family member at whose residence he is expected to live was not present.
“The prosecution would like the aunt to come to the court to verify that Flatts will be living with her,” the prosecutor said.
Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes ruled that the family member needed to confirm with the court that she was willing to let the accused reside with her. “You will have to hold on until we can confirm with the aunt,” Weekes said.
If he satisfies that condition, Flatts, who has been on remand since November last year, will also then have to adhere to a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily curfew on his release. He must also sign in at Central Police Station every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday by 11 a.m. with valid identification.
Flatts is accused of entering the house of Carl Greenidge as a trespasser on October 12, 2020 and stealing $7 000 in cash. It is claimed that he had a knife at the time. The young man is further alleged to have assaulted the homeowner on the same day with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to do some other serious bodily harm to him.
He cannot plead to the indictable charges before the Magistrates’ Court.
Flatts is also facing a March 2, 2019 charge of assaulting Rodney Jackman.
