Keyren Tzib Refused Bail

Keyren Tzib

Seven weeks since the start of Keyren Tzib’s bail application and after many adjournments, Judge Troadio Gonzalez finally made a determination earlier today and it was not good news for Tzib. But first he went into detailed explanation of arguments presented by both sides.  Judge Gonzalez noted that Tzib was seeking bail from prison due to her illness, an acute anxiety syndrome of post anxiety which was supported in trial by the testimony of Doctor Richard Olivera.  The judge also took into consideration the strong objections of the crown, but primarily he specified that when the doctor was pressed if Tzib would be violent to herself while out on bail, his response was that he was not one percent certain.  The judge recalled that the doctor’s response was that if Tzib is provoked, she will act out and those findings troubled the court.  In the end, Judge Gonzalez determined that he had to lean towards the doctor’s evidence and that it was not safe to grant bail to Tzib since she could be a menace to society or a threat to herself. The judge, however, stated that it was the responsibility of the prison to provide support and counselling as well as treatment to Tzib.  Before leaving the court room, Judge Gonzalez made an order that Tzib must return to court by December twenty-third, 2015 so she can be given a date for trial since the prosecution is not in the position to say when Tzib’s case for manslaughter will be heard. If the conditions he set out are met, the judge said bail would be offered. Tzib has been charged with the manslaughter of her common-law-husband, Thytis Blancaneaux which occurred in Lord’s Bank in July of this year.
