A LAWYER for convict Antonio “Snake” Symonnette, who was convicted of two counts of grievous harm in the Supreme Court, requested an adjournment of the sentencing hearing yesterday.
Symonnette, 36, of Abaco, was on trial for two counts of attempted murder in the shootings of Justin Kyle Nottage and Wellington Roker on October 1, 2016. Roker remains paralysed as a result of the shooting.
A jury found him not guilty of the attempted murder charges, but guilty of the charges of grievous harm.
At the hearing on yesterday, lawyer Brian Hanna asked for an adjournment, informing the court he would be proposing a plea bargain to the Crown on his client’s behalf.
Mr Hanna intends to offer a plea bargain of compensation to the victims as part of the penalty in exchange for probation for his client.
Justice Estelle Gray Evans adjourned the matter to January 29 at 10am.
