An alleged witness in the Mario Deane case, Fahdean Ferguson, today pleaded guilty with explanation to the charge of escaping police custody.
Ferguson told the court that he was taken to the Montego Police Station to participate in a video identification exercise in connection with Deane’s case.
Ferguson told the court that after participating in an identification parade police personnel placed him in a holding area.
He further said the area was left open so he decided to walk away.
Ferguson was remanded into custody by the court and ordered to return on October 17.
Presiding magistrate Carolyn Tie also ordered that Ferguson’s police records and a social enquiry report be prepared for his next court date.
