Two sent to Grand Court for firearm charges

After a preliminary inquiry in Summary Court on Wednesday, two people had firearm-related charges committed to Grand Court for mention there on July 31.

Jose Guadalupe Sanchez, 28, and Ashley Leticha Terry, 26, appeared before Magistrate Grace Donalds. Defense attorneys Guy Dilliway-Parry and John Furniss agreed to a “short-form” inquiry, meaning that no witnesses had to be called.

Sanchez is charged with possession of an unlicensed 9mm semiautomatic pistol following an incident at the Everglo Bar in Bodden Town on the night of July 4.

Terry is charged with possession of the same firearm on the same date, plus being an accessory after the fact to Sanchez’s possession. The magistrate continued Terry’s bail and remanded Sanchez in custody until the Grand Court date.
