Selgado Abetment Trial To Resume Tuesday

The trial of Attorney, Oscar Selgado was scheduled to resume today before Justice Nigel Pilgrim, but it never got a chance to proceed beyond where it was adjourned on December nineteenth. This morning, there was a sexual assault case involving a minor that spilled over from last week that was given priority. The Selgado trial was adjourned for this afternoon, but the other trial had not concluded. Hence, the Selgado trial was adjourned again until ten Tuesday morning. Selgado, as we’ve reported, is charged with abetment to commit murder against Marilyn Barnes. Barnes had reported Selgado to the General Legal Counsel for unethical behaviour. And then Geovanni Ramirez, who had sought Selgado’s assistance for a separate matter when he was charged with a gun offense, claimed that Selgado had tried to hire him to murder Barnes. The investigating officer in the matter, former Inspector of Police, Wilfredo Ferrufino, is expected to be called to testify when the trial resumes, as well as the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams. Williams had met with Ramirez upon Ramirez’ request to discuss the matter when he felt that his safety was at risk. Of note is that today, both the prosecution, led by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Cheryl-Lyn Vidal and Defense Attorney, Adolph Lucas Senior, agreed to have evidence that came out of a voir dire held late last year in the trial, be admitted in the substantive matter when it resumes on Tuesday.
