Teens denied bail on assault charge

Wednesday, August 19 2015

TWO boys were refused bail yesterday in the San Fernando Magistratesí Court under the Bail (Amendment) Act 2014 on a charge of assault with intent to rob.

The boys, both 15-years-old, who live at St Margaretís Village, near Claxton Bay, were charged on Thursday last with the offence and taken to court. They appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Mark Wellington and were remanded to the Youth Training Centre (YTC).

Attorney Lisa Singh-Phillip of the Legal Aid and Advisory Authority appeared for the boys. She submitted to Wellington that they were minors and under the Childrenís Authority Act should not be treated as adults. Wellington had refused bail on the grounds that they were charged under the Bail (Amendment) Act which states that any person who is charged with offences listed in the schedule ó use of a gun in the commission of a crime ó will be refused bail for a period of 120 days.

Yesterday, Singh-Phillip submitted that perhaps the Act did not envisage minors, but Wellington said the legislation must be looked at in a general sense. The matter has been adjourned to October 20.
