Man freed of having Tesha Miller's documents

March 09, 2016

Despite being in possession of driver's licence application form that bore the image of reputed don Tesha Miller and had the name Itashi Miller written on it, a St Catherine man was freed yesterday.

Victor Barnes, a resident of Ensom City, Spanish Town, walked free from the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court after the Crown conceded that it could not prove the case against him.

Barnes was arrested in May 2010 after police raided his house and found the documents. He was subsequently charged with forgery and possession of forged document.

However, his attorney, Courtney Maxwell, successfully argued that his client had no knowledge the documents were forged.

He said that it would be very difficult for the Crown to prove otherwise, and that the accused should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Resident Magistrate Llyle Armstrong agreed and told Barnes, who has been acquitted of fraud charges in the past, that there was not a case for him to answer. He was then set free.
