Brandin Miller of 91 Custard Apple Street, Pioneer’s Loop plead not guilty to the charges of possession of an Unlicensed Firearm and Ammunition Wednesday (October 16) morning, when he was arraigned in the Freeport Magistrate Court, Garnet Levarity Justice Centre.
Miller, 24, who appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Debbye Ferguson, clad in a sky blue colored shirt and jeans, was represented by Attorney Brian Hanna.
Prosecutor Sergeant Vernon Rolle, objected to bail for the Miller stating that the accused was granted bail in the past, before a Justice in the Supreme Court in December 2017 for the charge of Murder.
Sgt. Rolle shared that one Miller’s requirements for bail was to be fitted with an ankle monitoring device and that he should be remanded and returned before the Justice, because the bail condition was originally set there.
Hanna interjected, arguing that his client has rights under the Constitution and the charge is a new charge, which has nothing to do with his murder charge and he should be treated as an innocent man.
Prosecutor Rolle noted that while the charge is a new, it stems from the murder charge bail conditions which he alleged was breached by the defendant, who is responsible for making his device not operational by tampering with it.
After hearing both parties’ submissions, Ferguson granted bail in the sum of $2,500 cash and the matter was adjourned to April 22, 2020.
