By Aaron Humes: Supreme Court Justice Herbert Lord has revoked the bail he set two weeks ago for Jasmine Hartin following a hearing this afternoon. As a result she has been remanded to prison.
Hartin, 32, has added drug possession for the small amount of cocaine found on her when she was first detained following the fatal shooting of Henry Jemmott and a common assault charge to that of manslaughter by negligence.
Hartin has switched attorneys, retaining Richard “Dickie” Bradley instead of Senior Counsel Godfrey Smith.
According to Hartin she was on the island of Ambergris Caye to see her twin children with Andrew Ashcroft, son of Lord Michael Ashcroft and her former partner. She alleges he refused to let her see them and filmed herself chasing after Andrew, asking him why he was refusing to give her time with them. This is the time the alleged assault took place.
The initial hearing concerned the possibility of Hartin being a flight risk and so the court was updated as to the totality of her following the bail conditions.
The court is believed to have also asked whether the investigation into Henry Jemmott’s has concluded and whether a preliminary inquiry can be held sooner rather than later, which may factor into whether she is remanded or stays out on bail with even more stringent conditions.
Notably, her surety is alleged to have withdrawn himself following the incident on his property.
We’ll have more details shortly.
