Judge says no to bail a fourth time

A 28-year-old man on six fraud charges was remanded to HMP Dodds yesterday.

He is Jerome Omar Waterman, of Martindales Road, St Michael.

Waterman was not required to plead to the charges when he appeared in the District "A" Magistrates' Court, where Prosecutor Sergeant Neville Reid objected to bail on a number of grounds. He said not only were the matters of a serious nature, but revealed that Waterman was already on three sets of bail and had outstanding warrants. Reid also told the court that the prosecution feared Waterman would fail to attend court if granted bail. Waterman, who was remanded until January 24, 2018; was represented by attorney-at-law Daniel Mottley.

The charges allege that:

1. On June 19, 2017 with intent to defraud, he uttered a certain forged bill of exchange to Fusionz Boutique purporting to be (a) RBC Royal Bank of Canada (Barbados) Limited cheque payable to Ryan Clark for $1100 knowing the same to be forged.

 

2. On June 19, 2017 with intent to defraud, obtained from Fusionz Boutique, a pair of shoes valued at $220 and $880 in money by virtue of a forged RBC Royal Bank of Canada (Barbados) Limited cheque payable to Ryan Ray Clark for $1100 knowing the same to be forged.
