A MAN awaiting trial in connection with the armed robbery a former Cabinet minister’s wife asked a judge for assistance with retaining counsel yesterday.
Keno Evans, 32, appeared before Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs as his case had been adjourned a week ago due to an absence of lawyers.
Evans is accused of armed robbery, causing harm and possession of an unlicenced firearm stemming from the November 21, 2014, accosting of Ruby Roker, wife of former Immigration Minister Loftus Roker.
The judge asked Evans if he was still being representing by Geoffrey Farquharson. Evans said he was trying to get a new lawyer and asked for help.
Senior Justice Isaacs adjourned the matter to September 16 for a status hearing in order to facilitate Evans’ application for a court-appointed attorney.
