Lack of file upsets lawyer, court

The case of two non-nationals who have signalled their intention to plead guilty but can’t because of a lack of a file provoked the ire of their attorney and the court yesterday.

In fact, Justice Randall Worrell has urged Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim to file bail applications on behalf of both men.

Anton James, of Golden Lane, Seaview, Tobago, and Krysten Trim, of Bon Accord Main Road, Tobago, are on remand at Dodds Prison after they were charged with possession, trafficking and possession with intent to supply of 426.92 pounds of marijuana on February 15, 2021.

When their matters were called during yesterday’s Status Hearings in the No. 2 Supreme Court, it was revealed that the file from the magistrates’ court had still not reached the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. This was despite they indicating they wanted to plead guilty at the High Court. (HLE)
