A press release disseminated by the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force’s Public Relations Office, informs that 42-year-old Joseph ‘Baa’ Herbert of Lower Monkey Hill was formally arrested and charged “on a warrant in the first instance for the offence of buggery which was committed upon a certain male person between 9th July and 13th October 2010.”
The release further informs that the police “are objecting to bail and if the court finds favour with the police grounds for objecting he would be remanded to HM Prison awaiting trial.”
Herbert was arrested on Thursday 9th December 2010 at about 9:00 in the evening.
Mario Alexander Harvey alias Antonio was the other individual who was arrested and charged with buggery. He was officially arrested and charged on Wednesday 7th December 2010 at about 5:15 in the afternoon “on a warrant in the first instance for the offence of buggery which was committed upon a certain male person between 9th July and 13th October 2010”.
This media house understands that Harvey made application for bail, which was objected to by the police and as a result, he was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) on 8th December 2010.
Investigations into both are on-going.
