Feb 28, 2013 News Comments Off on High Court finds missing juror in jail
Patrick Persaud, the absent juror who failed to show up in the Berbice High court on Tuesday thus stalling the proceedings in Justice Brassington Reynolds’s court, was in jail.
Justice Reynolds was hearing a matter of wounding with the intent to murder, and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, maim, disfigure or disable.
The police went in search of him and was told that he was jailed earlier in the day.
Patrick Persaud, 37, of Cotton Tree village, West Coast Berbice, is a cane harvester at the Blairmont Estate. He was in arrears of affiliation fees and was picked up on Monday afternoon after a report was made to the Blairmont Police station that a warrant was out for his arrest.
He was taken to the Fort Wellington Magistrate’s court on Tuesday and appeared before Magistrate Roby Benn when he was sentenced to three months in jail. The implication for the High Court trial is devastating.
