Teen to spend more time on remand

first_imgNineteen-year-old Don Cameron, who is no stranger to the courts, was on Friday further remanded to prison by Magistrate Leron Daly on a simple larceny charge.Cameron had denied the allegations made out against him when he had made his first court appearance.The prosecution is contending that on June 19, 2018, at Alexander Street, Kitty, Cameron stole one Samsung phone valued $45,000.During his second appearance on Friday, the unrepresented teen pleaded with the court to grant him bail in a reasonable sum.Bail was, however, refused, and Cameron was further remanded to prison until September 21.On his first court appearance, Cameron’s mother told the court she had adopted him when he was a baby, and after he found out two years ago that she was his foster mother and not his biological mother, he had become wayward.She told the court that the teen no longer resided with her, and that he was previously convicted on a simple larceny charge for which he had spent two years at the New Opportunity Corps.“When he came out, he was smoking weed and behaving disorderly,” the woman told the court.She informed the court that she was tired of Cameron’s behaviour and “jail ain’t doing nothing for him.” The Police Prosecutor objected to bail being granted, and asked that the lad be remanded.last_img read more
