Up to press time Ronson was still being detained at the Criminal Investigations Department.On Friday, Justice George-Wiltshire ruled that Dodson be admitted to $500,000 bail .The accused was also requested to lodge his passport and also to report to the police station.Justice Roxanne George-Wiltshire also awarded Dodson $250,000 as damages for the aggravation of waiting for the completion of his preliminary inquiry.The judge had made an order last year stating that the preliminary inquiry should commence within ten days. The order said that the evidence of witnesses should be completed within 60 days, and if the applicant is again committed and indicted the prosecution is to expedite the presentation of his indictment for the trial before December 31, 2010.Dodson was charged with the 2006 murder of Lennox Rodriguez.The preliminary inquiry was heard intermittently by former Magistrate Gordon Gilhuys. This resulted in protracted delays in the conduct of the inquiry.The magistrate never managed to complete the matter, since he was involved in a shooting incident on Woolford Avenue almost two years ago and had resigned.The inquiry was further delayed because of the unavailability of a magistrate to hear and determine the preliminary inquiry.On November 26, 2008, Dodson commenced constitutional proceedings against the Attorney General for various declarations in relation to the infringement of his constitutional right of a fair hearing within a reasonable time as guaranteed by article 144 of the constitution.The matter was called up before Justice Roxanne George-Wiltshire who found that Dodson’s right to a fair hearing had been infringed and awarded damages in Dodson’s favour.Justice George-Wiltshire, according to the affidavit, had further ordered and directed on January 15, 2010,cheap nfl jerseys, that the preliminary inquiry commence within 120 days, failing which Dodson would be admitted to bail.

Attorney at law Basil Williams had stated that Justice Insanally had no jurisdiction since no judge can sit on another judge’s order.Williams said that order would continue to make his client be imprisoned, and his constitutional rights trampled upon.Justice James Bovell-Drakes granted Sumner his pre-trial liberty because of the failure of the Director of Public Prosecutions to obey an order of the court.The first time that a judge had granted bail to a murder accused was the Chief Justice Ian Chang, in the case of Hemchand Persaud.
