Marico Bassett Charged With Attempted Murder

July 28, 2010

This morning [July 28] 19-year-old Marico Bassett of Loyalty Drive, Sandys Parish was charged in Magistrates Court with the attempted murder of 44 year old Randolph “Randy” Lightbourne which occurred five days ago on July 23 in Sandy’s Parish. He did not enter a plea as the matter must be heard in Supreme Court and was remanded in custody until August 11. In addition to the attempted murder charge, he was also charged with a number of drug offences.

Mr Bassett was brought into the court from Hamilton Police Station surrounded by Police officers, escorted back to the station, then placed in a waiting car, with the scene calm throughout. There was a heavy Police presence throughout the whole proceedings, which was also due to the court appearance of Alvone Maybury which occurred only minutes after Mr Bassett was brought out.

    Before anyone jumps to conclusions he was charged, not found guilty. You don’t know the evidence so do not proceed to publish such childish statements. He does not live alone he was brought up respectfully & behaves in a mannerly way. If it were your child or relative or friend your entire attitude would change therefore make sure you thoroughly think before PUBLISHING such a nasty comment on a public site.

    Nevertheless, hopefully Bermuda’s police force finds success to decrease or even better eliminate all of these shootings. Please be safe over the holidays.
