Michael Charles a prison convict who has spent most of his life in jail is once more on remand at the Richmond Hill Prison, charged with stealing one tablet valued at seven hundred dollars, the property of Kenny Henry of Conference, St Andrew.
Charles appeared before the Grenville Magistrate’s Court last Monday and a charge of stealing was read to him, he pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor told the court that Charles had sixteen previous convictions on record, which range from housebreaking and stealing to stealing, wounding, robbery with violence and others and therefore they are using this as the grounds for bail not to be granted to him as it is likely that while on bail he would continue to commit offenses of a similar nature.
Charles told the court that he knows nothing about the charge; he said he did not steal the man’s gadget. He proposed that the tablet probably fell from the man and somebody else found it. Bail was not granted to the accused and therefore he was remanded to custody at the Richmond Hill Prison and would be brought back to court at a later date.
