A 17-year-old man accused of robbing a woman at gunpoint last year was granted bail yesterday.
The juvenile defendant, whose name is being withheld because he is a minor, stood before Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux accused of armed robbery. He was in the presence of his guardian and was represented by attorney Terrell Johnson.
It is alleged that on September 22 in New Providence the accused, while being concerned with another and armed with a black handgun, robbed Pamela Taylor of $200 that belonged to MST convenience store.
As the charge is an indictable offence the teenage defendant was not required to enter a plea in court. He was informed that his matter would be transferred to the Supreme Court by way of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment (VBI), and was granted $7,000 bail with one or two sureties. Service of the VBI is set for May 24.
