Trial of embattled Parker family to begin on Monday

Hezekiah-Parker Jr

A Wireless Road family who was allegedly involved in an altercation with police on December 11, 2016, are scheduled to come before the courts next Monday for trial.

Hezekiah Parker Jr. and his parents Mary Cynthia Parker and Hezekiah Parker Sr. were charged with several offences related to the incident.

Police reported while officers were on mobile patrol near Wireless Road they spotted Parker Jr. in a vehicle, which came to a stop outside his home.

The officers said he was then seen hustling from the car while clutching to his trousers in a suspicious manner.

The law enforcers reportedly gave chase and managed to hold him outside his home where a struggle ensued.

Police reported they found a loaded 9mm Colt Luger Pistol concealed in his waist.

Investigators also allege the mother and father exited the house and joined in the struggle.

Parker Sr., a former Sergeant of Police, allegedly grabbed hold of one of the officer’s firearm and attempted to pull the trigger.

However, it is reported the gun did not go off since the safety feature was still activated.

Police reported during the struggle the officers sustained injuries about their bodies and also had their clothes torn.

Parker Jr. was later charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition while the parents were charged with several counts of obstructing police in the course of their duty and battery on police.

Cynthia Parker was also charged with malicious damage and Parker Sr. was additionally charged for attempting to discharge a firearm to prevent the lawful apprehension of his son.

 The charge of attempting to discharge a firearm to prevent the lawful apprehension of someone is indictable so can only be tried in the High Court. Committal proceedings for this matter are set for March.

The family has denied the charges.
