St Lucy ban on accused


Andre Lord Evil Jackman is a free man once again, two months after he was remanded on four serious charges, one of them gun-related.

However, Barbados TODAY understands that as one of the conditions attached to his bail he won’t be allowed to reside in St Lucy.

That was one of the conditions to which the 39-year-old of Stroud Bay, Crab Hill, St Lucy, will have to adhere after he was granted bail in the sum of $150,000 by Justice Randall Worrell when he appeared in the Supreme Court on December 14, 2018.

Jackman, also popularly known as Punchies, was represented by attorney-at-law Angela Mitchell Gittens and was released last week after his bail was finally posted.

He had been remanded to HMP Dodds on October 5, 2018, by Magistrate Wanda Blair after appearing in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court on four charges.

Jackman is charged with using a firearm without a valid licence; two counts of endangering life; inciting Shane Babb to engage in conduct that endangered life, as well as inciting Tyrone Moore to engage in conduct that endangered life on September 30, 2018.

Last April, Jackman had a murder charge against him dismissed.

He had been charged along with Zaviere Renaldo Walkes of Archer’s Road, Crab Hill and Rory St Clair Thomas of Grape Hall and Shane Akeem Omar Babb of Fryer’s Well, with the April 26, 2014 murder of Charly Dume.

However, Principal Crown Counsel Alliston Seale acting on the instructions of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) said there was insufficient evidence to go forward with the case against the men.
