A man accused of using a pregnant 17-year-old to traffic narcotics in sanitary napkins, was on Friday freed of the charge at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Shemar Morrison of Lot 6 Durban Street, Lodge, Georgetown, walked out of court a free man after Magistrate Leron Daly declared that a prima facie case was not made out against him.
It was alleged that Morrison, also known as ‘Damage Skull’, between March 1 and July 3, 2016 within Georgetown procured Patricia Isaacs to traffic 698 grammes of cocaine at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
The Magistrate ruled on the grounds that the prosecution failed to prove that the substance was cocaine.
Morrison was represented by Attorney Adrian Thompson.
Isaacs had pleaded guilty to having 698 grams of cocaine in her possession for the purpose of trafficking on July 3, 2016 and was jailed. She was an outgoing passenger at the airport and was scheduled to board Caribbean Airlines (CAL) flight BW 526 destined for JFK International Airport, New York, United States.
