Court of Appeal Reserves Decision in the Case of Gareth Hemmans Junior

Gareth Hemmans Jr.

The Court of Appeal today heard the case of thirty-two-year-old Gareth Hemmans Junior, who is convicted of attempted murder and is serving an eight-year sentence handed down in October of 2016. But Hemmans Junior will have to wait to learn his fate since the court reserved decision.  Hemmans Junior is behind bars for the attempted murder of Miguel Zaiden, who was chopped with a machete on May first, 2016. Hemmans Junior was convicted before Justice Adolph Lucas, in a trial without a jury. The two men fought over a female. Hemmans’ attorney, Anthony Sylvestre, appealed on five grounds pointing out that the decision was erroneous on various points of law and that the learned trial judge failed to give himself adequate direction on a false alibi.
