COURT ROUND-UP: Man’s bail revoked, person who stood surety risks losing land

Bail was revoked for James Charles, who is charged with one count of cultivating an illegal plant (cannabis) and one count of possession of an illegal drug (cannabis) with intent to supply another.

He was bailed in the sum of $8,000 or suitable surety.  The surety was provided in the form of land documents by Arnold Agis who appeared in court yesterday to plead for time to pay the $8,000 in cash to the Crown in order to avoid forfeiture of his land, which he and his wife put up as surety.

Agis was ordered to return to court on January 17 with proof of payment or risk forfeiture of his land to the Crown.

Charles, who has not appeared in court since September, has eluded capture by police since then.  A bench warrant is outstanding on the defendant.
