  1. They got 15 grand yet they stealing phones smph more convicts and predators roaming the streets day and night!. Smph

  2. The Courts in St.Lucia Decision on this Criminal s is too Lenient.They refuse to impose the Maximum Penalty .Fine and Confined .Government Should seek immediate Assistance from overseas to extend the Bordelais Correctional Facality

  3. Don’t change the law. Keep on providing bail. Their cases are generally about a year after bail. Someone believes that gun criminals are spending the interim knitting dollies. Some of “de authorities” are simply clowns wearing suits.

    I know Pierre is “trying a little ting” but it’s time he hand the baton to a professional.

  4. For me the magistrate is encouraging these criminals to continue their profession. I am tempted to believe these very bail monies must be paying the salaries of these magistrate because and I could very well include the DPP. Because objection to bail with strong reasons will cause the magistrate to differ unless the magistrate is completely corrupted

  5. These young fellas need to do some hard time….make them clean the roads and streets in addition to being sentenced. Don’t see why govt has to pay people to clean our roadsides. Let’s think out of the box like we used to back in the days cause the magistrates and the whole system is trash.

  6. I am not happy about bail being granted to persons arrested for committing serious crimes. But I understand that magistrates and judges must follow the law. @ George Forde. It may well be the kid who assaulted the businessman cannot raise the bail money. The whole idea of granting is to preserve the principle that someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Bail is set to make it harder for someone to leave the country until their cases are heard. It’s not possible to change the take away the discretion of a magistrate or judge to grant bail. Thats not me saying it. That’s the higher courts who said so. I agree that Bordelais should be expanded.

  7. I totally agree with George Forde, in fact I think these should have been denied bail since the female in that attack is still hospitalized with a fractured skull. Shouldn’t that be considered attempted murder? I also think it was the right thing to deny the teenager bail, but I’m just saying the same should have been for these. I think these judges and magistrates are trying to make St. Lucians begin to practice vigilante justice. Don’t forget that people have relatives who can be worse than those criminals.
