“Fix It” changes plea to guilty

first_img…wounded man who refused to give him moneyOne day after Quincy Henry, called “Fix It”, denied he had wounded Troy Bacchus, called “Fletcher,” with intent to murder him — on September 20, 2015 at Bourda in Georgetown – he changed his plea to guilty at the High Court on Thursday.He had previously said he was defending himself, but after reconsideration, he accepted responsibility for his actions; and this has led Justice Brassington Reynolds to direct the jury foreman to return a formal verdict of guilty.Justice Reynolds has, however, delayed passing sentence on the handyman to October 8, to facilitate the preparation and presentation of a probation report. On October 8, a plea of mitigation and summary of the facts will also be presented.Based on reports surrounding the case, Henry has had a habit of asking individuals for money, and would be violent when persons refuse his request. On the day in question, Bacchus refused Henry’s request, and was wounded by him.During Wednesday’s court appearance, Henry seemed to have had difficulty hearing, as the Judge and the Court’s Registrar had had to repeat statements several times while communicating with him. He had been placed on $50,000 bail prior to his High Court appearance.Henry had not been represented by legal counsel at his trial, as he had not retained one, and the State is not required to provide legal representation for attempted murder.last_img read more
