A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday after he was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court on two firearms related offences.

Shawn Farrington, 32, appeared before Magistrate Constance Delancy facing a count each of possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition concerning an alleged seizure on Friday, November 18.

It is alleged that Farrington was found with a silver and black 9mm revolver and five live rounds of 9mm ammunition for the weapon without being the holder of a certificate or license to possess the items.

Farrington, when called on to enter a plea to the charges, denied committing any crime.

He returns to Magistrate’s Court on January 17, 2017 for the start of his case.

He was denied bail, however, and was remanded to the Department of Correctional Services.

Farrington has the right to apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

He has retained attorney Donna Major to represent him against the charges, which could see him face a fine and/or seven years imprisonment if convicted.
