Jasmine Hartin case postponed after COVID diagnosis

Posted: Tuesday, February 15, 2022. 4:06 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Breaking Belize News confirmed this afternoon with attorney for Jasmine Hartin, Richard “Dickie” Bradley, that her latest court appearance in San Pedro Town due on Wednesday has been postponed as she has come down with COVID-19.

Hartin is accused of manslaughter by negligence of Senior Superintendent of Police Henry Jemmott in May of 2021, and separately of common assault and possession of a minute amount of cocaine on the night of Jemmott’s death.

A new date will be set according to Bradley, who has indicated elsewhere that disclosure has not been fully produced in the indictable case. Hartin is also in an ongoing custody battle in the Family Court with the father of her twins, Andrew Ashcroft.

To avoid contagion, Bradley noted, Hartin cannot even visit the police station to sign in every day per her bail conditions.

Bradley says he is looking forward to mounting a vigorous defence, perhaps with the assistance of two British defense attorneys he says has contacted him, but he also noted that Hartin is likely to face civil liability for Jemmott’s death, which has greatly affected the children he left behind.

We will continue to follow the story.
