Trial of Teen Accused of Breaking into Clare Hall Secondary School Delayed for Six Weeks


The trial of Gerard DeFreitas, a 19-year-old who allegedly invaded the premises of Clare Hall Secondary School in Antigua, has been postponed for about six weeks.

DeFreitas, who is accused of trespassing on the school’s compound, being armed with an offensive weapon, and assault, was remanded to prison after pleading not guilty to all charges.

The trial was scheduled for April 20 but has been adjourned until June 1.

The incident had sparked fear and outrage among parents and teachers who called for improved security measures, prompting the installation of better lighting and CCTV cameras at some public schools.
