“Dangerous criminal” jailed for three months

A “dangerous criminal” with mental health problems was jailed for three months at Magistrates' Court yesterday for uttering threatening words.

Junius Caines, 44, of Happy Valley Road, Pembroke, has already served more than two months for the crime, having been on remand since June 28.

Caines previously admitted a charge of saying “F*** you, I'll kill you. I'll f***ing kill everyone” to another patron at the Salvation Army.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner said Caines was a repeat offender with a history of mental illness, including schizophrenia, and needed to be in a “forensic lockdown facility”, but Bermuda did not have one.

He added: “Mr Caines is a dangerous criminal with a history that speaks for itself. He does not allow himself to be treated.”

He gave the defendant two years probation, in addition to the jail term.

Mr Warner ordered Caines to stay off alcohol and drugs, keep away from the Salvation Army, comply with medical help and avoid association with people engaging in illicit activity.
