US court refuses to lower bond for Belizean charged with drugs and ammo offenses

Posted: Tuesday, April 9, 2019. 4:35 pm CST.

A judge in Erie County Pensylvania has refused to lower the US$500,000 bond for Jermaine E. Belgrave, a Belizean who was arrested and charged after a shootout with police.

The judge, Daniel Brabender, cited a long criminal history and possible gang affiliation among the many reasons he refused to lower
the bond.

“I think this defendant is a considerable flight risk and possibly a danger to the community,” Brabender said.

The prosecution presented evidence that Belgrave has 23 prior convictions for offenses including assault in Belize,  is currently wanted on a bench warrant in Belize for a robbery case, and was also accused of murder in 2010 but later acquitted.

He will remain in Erie County Prison until his case is called up later this year. Belgrave, along with another Belizean, Charles Baizar, were arrested on February 7. Prosecutors said that they and two others drove from Chicago to Pensylvania to sell some US$80,00 of heroin but got robbed of some of it and ended up in a shootout with police in front of a hotel. Both men were shot in the process.
