By BBN Staff: The Belize City Magistrate’s Court re-emphasized this week that bail is a right as opposed to a privilege when she granted a defendant bail despite heavy objections by the prosecution.
The prosecution stressed that the defendant, Trevor Brown, who was arraigned on charges of harm and threatening words, had four previous convictions for similar offenses. The prosecution also noted that Brown has unpaid fines before the court from those previous convictions.
Still, the Magistrate exercised her power of discretion and granted bail in the sum of $2,000 plus one surety of the same which he was able to meet.
The allegations against him are that on Saturday, December 11, Barista Tillet, the sister of the woman he is dating, was at her mother’s house along with Kendra Garbutt when Brown showed up to the house and began an altercation. Tillett reportedly ran inside the house and Brown started hurling pint bottles at the house, one of which caused an injury to Tillett, which doctors later classified as harm. Brown also allegedly told Garbutt that he would kill her.
He is due back in court on February 8, 2022.
