Gun and ammo matter resumes


Share post:

THE PROSECUTION will respond tomorrow when the gun and ammunition matter against David Wayne Harper continues in the No. 2 Supreme Court.

Harper, 49, a painter, of Bibby’s Lane, St Michael, was back in court last Friday before Justice Randall Worrell after he had pleaded guilty, in May, to having a 9mm semi-automatic firearm and seven bullets on May 26, 2017.

“I apologise for the offence,” said Harper, who has spent 1 094 days on remand.

Attorney Sian Lange told the court her client made a bad decision in taking up the gun. However, she contended the offences showed no sophistication, that Harper had no previous convictions and had apologised for his actions.

“Mr Harper went above and beyond to get his matters before the High Court. He cooperated with police and he was assessed as having a low risk of re-offending,” Lange said. (HLE)
