THE trial involving members of the Uchence Wilson Gang was yesterday adjourned until Monday in the Home Circuit Court.

The adjournment was done to give defence lawyers time to prepare questions for the Crown’s witness in relations to 73 photographs that were presented of different robbery scenes, about which the witness had previously testified.

The photographs were taken by the police after the witness took them to the different scenes.

The Crown’s witness, a 21-year-old ex-security guard and barber who was also part of the gang and who has been testifying via video link from a remote location, was yesterday shown the photographs. He also gave further evidence, primarily about where the photographs were taken and how the gang gained entry to the different premises.

The photographs included images of: the house in Clarendon where the witness had testified that a young girl was allegedly raped by the alleged gang leader Uchence Wilson and his co-accused, Michael Lamont; the farm store in Bog Walk, St Catherine, where the witness testified that the gang had broken into ; and the homes of his two relatives in St Ann, premises he testified that the gang had also robbed.

Wilson and 23 alleged gang members, including his alleged deputy Fitzroy Scott, four females and police corporal Lloyd Knight, are being tried for various offences under the Criminal Justice (Suppression of Criminal Organisations) Act, commonly referred to as the Anti-Gang Legislation, and also for offences under the Firearms Act.

All of the accused, except Shadday Baker, were remanded by Chief Justice Bryan Sykes until Monday when the trial will resume.
