A 19-year-old man — who cannot be named for legal reasons — appeared in this morning’s [July 2] Supreme Court monthly arraignments, and denied charges of serious sexual assault as well as using a firearm to commit an indictable offence. The defendant is alleged to have sexually assaulted a female at gunpoint during a home invasion.
The teenager is the only one charged with sexual assault, but one of three defendants facing charges in relation to an armed home invasion earlier this year. The teenager and the other two defendants [Triston Burgess and Olicie Morgan] will remain in custody until their trial in September.
Also appearing in the arraignment session was Ahijah Dill, who maintained his plea of not guilty to charges of wounding and having a bladed article [machete] on 22 January, 2012, outside the Leopard’s Club. He will remain in custody until his trial later this year.
Kiare Hollis, Cordell Samuels, Celia Correia, and Shuntai Scraders also appeared in Supreme Court this morning. Mr Hollis alone pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to import cannabis, two money laundering charges, and one charge of possession of drug equipment.
Both Ms Correia and Ms Scraders pleaded not guilty to two charges each relating to money laundering said to have taken place between 1st August 2007 and 7th August 2011. The defendants will remain free on bail until their trial on 4th December 2012.
