Man to be sentenced for threats to Premier


A man who sent a series of death threats to David Burt and his family is to be sentenced this month.

Jared Gordon admitted last June that he sent the e-mails to Mr Burt in 2017 and 2018 in which he threatened to “put a bullet” in the Premier’s head and cut off his head with a hacksaw.

Karen King Deane, for the Crown, argued at the time that Mr Gordon should be imprisoned for up to four years.

Simone Smith-Bean, said it was important that her client received the treatment that he needed. He was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced on January 28.

The case was one of several that appeared before Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons at the January arraignment session.

Tuan Nguyen denied a series of theft-related charges.

Mr Nguyen, 33, and whose home country is unknown, pleaded not guilty to two charges of theft. He denied stealing $21,452.50 from Clarien Bank and $13,250 from the Bank of Butterfield between June 22 and July 2, 2019.

Mr Nguyen also pleaded not guilty to attempting to steal $135,007.50 from Clarien Bank, $65,200 from Butterfield Bank, and $200 from HSBC during the same period. He also denied removing stolen cash worth $7,000. Mr Nguyen’s trial is set to start on April 6.

Two men also denied drug charges. Charles Butterfield pleaded not guilty to possession of cannabis and cannabis resin with intent to supply on December 20, 2018.

Kinte Smith pleaded not guilty to handling cannabis resin with intent to supply between an unknown date and December 20, 2018.
