A 26-year-old St. Patrick resident made his first court appearance at the St. George’s Magistrate’s Court on Friday 2nd June 2017 on a charge of attempted non-capital murder.
Rhoden Francis, a painter of La Taste, St.Patrick was initially charged after he allegedly used his vehicle to run over a St. George resident. The incident occurred on May 30th 2017 at La Taste, and left the victim who has since been discharged for the General Hospital, nursing injuries to various parts of the body.
After some argument by Francis’ attorney Peter David, he was granted bail of thirty thousand dollars with two sureties. As bail conditions, he must report to the Sauteurs Police Station on Mondays and Fridays, surrender all his travel documents and stay away from all witnesses in the matter.
Francis is due to re-appear in court on June 20th 2017
