Luis Hernandez, who is soon to stand trial in the High Court for shooting with intent, was yesterday, granted $400,000 bail after appearing before the court of appeal to make the application.
The accused was ordered to pay $150,000 cash and other bail conditions were put in place to facilitate his release from her Majesty?s Prison where he was on remand, and further ensure that he returns to court for trial during the ongoing May 2009 Criminal Assizes.
The Paradise View resident pleaded not guilty to shooting at Raymond Christian Wescott on July 6 last year. The incident occurred on the morning of the White Fete activity in Crosbies.
It is alleged that Hernandez and at least two individuals were engaged in a confrontation when he left the activity and returned with a gun, which he discharged.
No one was injured during the incident. Hernandez has made at least seven applications for bail before the High Court and on each occasion the application was denied.
