A MAN appeared in the Supreme Court yesterday for a status hearing into his case concerning receiving a car that had been stolen during a gunpoint carjacking.

Levio Braynen, 25, faces a charge of receiving concerning an armed robbery committed by 26-year-old Courtney Barry on January 16, 2014.

Barry, in a Supreme Court appearance in March of last year, pleaded guilty to accosting Gregory Wilkinson and taking his 2003 Honda Fit on the date in question and in a plea deal with the prosecution, received eight-year prison sentence.

He faced up to life imprisonment if convicted at trial.

Braynen faces the lesser charge of receiving, which alleged that he knowingly took possession of the vehicle that had been obtained from the commission of an offence.

He has yet to receive a trial date before Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs.

His lawyer Ian Cargill and Crown prosecutor Cephia Pinder-Moss were granted another status hearing fixed for September 21 to allow further discussions between the parties.
