Teenager Remanded In Custody, Bail Revoked

July 30, 2012

In Magistrates Court this morning [July 30], 18-year-old Tahj Robinson who has been on bail and mandated to wear an electronic monitoring device [EMD] had his limited freedom revoked.

He appeared this morning and had to answer to an allegation that he had breached his bail conditions which required him to be at his stated residence 24 hours a day.

The facts reported to Senior Magistrate Archie Warner were that in the evening of Friday 27th July, Mr Robinson’s EMD had malfunctioned. Mr Robinson had reported the matter and had been directed to go to the Hamilton Police Station. At the police station the matter was resolved and he was given one hour — starting at 10pm –to get back to his stated residence.

However the EMD’s GPS tracker indicated that at 10:43pm, he was in the vicinity of Horseshoe Bay and well away from his stated residence. Police followed up and went to Mr Robinson’s home at 11:00pm and found that he was not home.

The Court heard that Mr Robinson did not turn up at his stated residence until approximately 2am, several hours late. At that time Police took him into custody. In Court this morning Mr Robinson admitted being late arriving home that night.

The Senior Magistrate revoked his bail and ordered him remanded into custody until an already scheduled appearance tomorrow.

    How stupid can this guy be! He gets a curfew and still tries to beat the system. Give an inch and they take a mile. Someone in his household must have known he was out beyond his curfew! Maybe they should get a bracelet too.

    send d bie bootcamp dammit … cuz these youth have no drive nothing to live for … fatherless boys out there getting into lord knows what, defying authority, forsaking all in their path that is good and lawful … this kid obviously opposes rules … and for that he should be locked up but not without being taught a lesson. part of his parole should be linked to another person in his scenario and offering them guidance UDNER the guidance of a probatoin officer … in order to teach the lesson he needs to self reflect and be forced to relive it through someone else so that he could affect change in someone else … positive change … inturn affecting change within himself / bless.
