Bailing someone can be a very risky undertaking and a Good Samaritan found that out in no uncertain terms when he found himself on the wrong side of the law recently when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrates' court.  



Little did the accused, George Williams, know that when he stood bail for a man in the sum of $320,000 that he himself would soon be  behind bars as he was unable to pay the fee when the man he bailed absconded.


The whereabouts of the accused who absconded is unknown and he failed to appear in court when he was scheduled.


"Sir, do not bail anybody if you dont have the cash in hand. You say the accused lives in Linstead, but our records show he lives right here in Spanish Town," RM Jacqueline Wilcott sternly warned the accused. .


"You only brought $5,000 and that can't do, but we will accept it for the bailiff fee. Now listen carefully to me sir, on December 18th, you are to come here with at least $150,000 or you will spend Christmas with us courtesy of this court," she added.


The bail bond is set at $320,000.
