Man Serving Time For Cocaine Offenses Believes Police Did Not Test The Substance In His Possession

2

A man serving time for cocaine related offenses says there is no evidence that the substance found in his possession was tested.

He is appealing his convictions of possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply and drug trafficking.

In fact, He filed several grounds of appeal to support his case and court of appeal justices were expecting to hear his arguments verbally on Tuesday but when the matter was called his lawyer, Sherfield Bowen, requested permisssion to add a new ground of appeal.

According to Bowen, an officer gave evidence that the substance found in the accused’s possession was weighed at 6.2kg, however the substance which later resulted positive for cocaine had a weigh of 6.9kg.

Bowen says the police tested the wrong substance and his client conviction is unsafe.

The Office of the DPP has until November 8, 2019 to respond to the new ground and the case has been set for January at the next sitting of the Court of Appeal in Antigua & Barbuda.

  1. How did 6.2 kilograms expanded and grew to 6.9 kilograms? Perhaps over time it grew from a baby to an infant.LOL. Cannot wait to see the final verdict in this matter.

  2. Well they said it was “blood” that was found in vials near victims bodies and tagged him as the Vampire Killer, but was it actually blood or did the youngman like koolaid or ketchup.
