LeShore & Simons Sentenced To Life For Murder

November 6, 2014

In Supreme Court yesterday [Nov 5], Jahkeo LeShore and Darrion Simons both received a sentence of life in prison with each being required to serve a minimum of 25 years before being considered as eligible for any parole.

Justice Charles-Etta Simmons handed down this sentence following the pair’s conviction for the murder of David Clarke.

Each man also received a 10 year sentence for using a firearm in committing the murder. This 10 year sentence will run concurrent with the life sentence.

Justice Simmons also made these two rulings in respect of each man. For LeShore, now 32, his time spent in custody will be taken into consideration.

For Simons, 22, his time spent in custody and his time already spent serving another sentence will not be taken into consideration. Instead, his life sentence commences as of yesterday.

A police statement directly after Mr Clarke’s murder said: “The Police investigation so far has determined that Mr. Clarke had been travelling west on North Shore Road at about 10:30pm last night [Sunday 17th April 2011].

“Mr. Clarke had left a function at the Mid Atlantic Boat Club and was riding his motorcycle towards his residence which was less than 100 metres away from where this incident occurred.

“Mr. Clarke was targeted by two persons on a motorcycle who were also riding west on North Shore Road. They shot Mr. Clarke at close range.”

    At the end of the 25 years when these two individual go up to face the parole board the family members of the deceased need to be in that room also, so as they can express their feeling towards these two individual and what it is these two individuals have denied others of. Both of them are young and will still be relatively young when going up for parole yet the deceases children will still be without their father :-(
    I guess what I’m saying is, premeditated murderers when sentenced to life should not be granted parole at anytime and life should be life!

    • By the way if not mistaken, didn’t Bermuda Govt. once before send “Lifers” overseas to serve out their prison sentence?

    • Muhammad Goldberg says:

      And both men have immediately appealed the verdicts which seems to be the standard thing to do these days. Criminal behaviour already costs the law abiding taxpayers too much money that we do not have. I don’t think appeals should be free. By all means appeal your verdict or sentence if you feel justified in doing so, but if your appeal fails I believe your sentence should start over from the day your appeal is rejected.
