One year prison for failure to charge monitor


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN on bail for murder was sentenced to a year in prison after he admitted to consistently failing to charge his monitoring device.

Senior magistrate Carolyn Vogt-Evans charged Keno Stubbs, 22, with ten counts of violation of bail conditions. 

Stubbs was on release for a pending murder charge before the Supreme Court in the fatal shooting of Timothy Saunders as he worked at Rubis Service Station on Mackey and Madeira Streets on May 2, 2022.

 At the time of his death, Saunders was on release for a prison work scheme programme after he was sentenced to 18 months in jail for a triple manslaughter conviction in 2016. 

 Stubbs failed to charge his court ordered monitoring device 10 times between March 20 and April 16. 

 After pleading guilty to the charges, Stubbs was sentenced to a year at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
