Bail confiscated from accused gunman in 2018 shooting incident B

By Aaron Humes: It is traditionally part of bail conditions that one must attend all court dates until the case is resolved.

Dashay Williams, 21, charged with the attempted murder of Edwin Mejia Tejeda, found himself hauled before Supreme Court Justice Collin Williams today to explain why he has missed multiple court adjournments.

No such explanation was forthcoming, but his surety, identified as Phillipa Barrella, a relative, was summoned to court and ordered to pay the sum of money she signed for as his surety. Then-Justice Denis Hanomansingh had set bail at 5 thousand dollars in November of 2018.
After his bail was confiscated this morning, Williams, who was unrepresented in court, asked Justice Williams if he would consider granting him bail again so he could work and pay back his surety.

Justice Williams, who adjourned the matter for July 16, 2019, told Williams that he will have to wait until his next court date to know whether or not bail will be granted back to him in the matter.

For now, Dashay Williams is back on remand at the Belize Central Prison.
