Two weeks ago we told you that Police constable Jamil Scott was convicted of the theft of a police hand held radio and sentenced to 3 months in jail. But tonight he is free on bail. So how does a convicted person get bail?
Well, Scott appealed his conviction and sentence and today Justice Denis Hanomansingh granted a stay of execution and offered him a bail of $5,000.
Scott was represented by attorney Leeroy Banner while the Crown was represented by Crown Counsel Kileru Awich.
