A teenager and his friend, who robbed his grandmother last month have been offered bail pending pre-sentencing reports in preparation for sentencing.
However, while the friend 21-year-old Kadeem Jason Phillips, of Lascelles Terrace, St Michael was able to secure the $4 000 bail, 19-year-old Kevon Kurt Rahim Sealy, of no fixed place of abode, could not.
Sealy was not able to provide the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court with a suitable surety with whom he would reside until his matter is completed. He has been remanded again to Dodds until January 24.
Last month Sealy pleaded guilty to stealing $400 cash belonging to his sister Kyera Sealy on December 21. He and Phillips also admitted to robbing his grandmother Patricia Sealy of a number of items worth $4 103 including $600 cash the same day.
Previously explaining his actions, Kevon, said: “That night I was on drugs. I buy a shirt, a pants and some food.”
Phillips meanwhile said at the time of the robbery he was “stressed” as he was not working and his grandmother was “pressuring” him for money because he was “eating and not contributing”.
“I just do a foolish decision,” he admitted.
Phillips is now on a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily curfew and is to reappear before Chief Magistrate’ Ian Weekes on May 6.
Sealy will receive the same adjournment date and adhere to the same bail condition once he finds a suitable surety.
