The Rockies man charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery in Kingstown on March 15 has been granted bail.

The Serious Offences Court granted Kishorn Jackson, 26, EC$40,000 bail with one surety on Monday.

Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delplesche told the court that the Crown was no longer objecting to the man’s bail since the two persons he is accused of shooting have been discharged from hospital.

Jackson is charged that on March 15, 2018 at Heritage Square, Kingstown, he attempted to murder Errol Hinson of Enhams and Veron Williams of Kingstown Park.

Jackson was also charged with conspiracy to commit robbery at Heritage Square, also on March 15.

Hinson, 69, a security officer, received a gunshot to the left side of his jaw, while Williams, 43, of Kingstown Park, was shot in the left side of her back when a gunman attempted to rob the Lotto booth at Heritage Square.

Williams was working at the Lotto booth at the time of the incident.

Jackson was also ordered to report to the Central Police Station on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The next hearing in the matter is slated for June 28, 2018.

  1. I know that the justice system in svg is broken rotten and heavily in favor of the criminals but it have to be that the jail is badly over crowded. Stuff like this make no sense.

    Unbelievable. A man is granted bail for attempted murder. You can’t be serious. I am sure he going to commit a similar crime while on bail. How can the people have trust and faith in the justice system in SVG? Joker

    1. You may not like it but his charge is a bailable offense according to the Criminal Code of SVG.

      In most cases, once the victims are out of hospital, inter alia, bail will always be considered.
