Stephenson in more hot water

A Goodwill man, who was out on bail for unlawful use of a firearm, has found himself in more trouble with the law.

Al Stephenson appeared before Magistrate Ossie Lewis at the Roseau Magistrate Court Friday morning, charged with conspiring, along with others, to rob Kurby Thomas and Devin Joseph of $4,500 on June 6 in Goodwill.

Police prosecution objected to bail on the grounds that other persons were involved and that the defendant will interfere with its investigations.

The accused is currently remanded in custody.

The matter will be heard on August 26.

    Interesting magistrate. in 2008 my family were victims of armed robber, use of a firearm without a license, threatening to shoot my 13 year old son who caught the perpetrators loading one of his shot pigs into their van.
    When the case was brought to this magistrate he recluse d himself saying he could not rule on that case as one of the perpetrators was his friend…hence a delay by almost one year.
    Yet when the case was called the perpetrator had skipped out of the island. magistrate Behanzin issued a warrant for his arrest when he returned.
    At the next sitting he was shocked to see that this magistrate withdrew the warrant that Behanzin had issued.
    After that reward the perpetrator again was placed on bail for attacking myself and another man with a cutlas.
    Now he is on two sets of bail for two criminal counts against the same victim/me plus a high court order issued since 2008…
    So corrupt is the legal system in Dominica

    Interesting! You posted this article earlier and mistakenly called the Stevens as Alexander. I posted a comment as the prosecutor and it was deleted, yet you quickly and ungratefully changed the name. I thought you would have posted my comment and thank me. Looking forward to your continued cooperation! Lol.

    Admin: Many thanks!
