The Richards brothers appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrates Court recently on charges of being a part of a gang, extortion and wounding with intent.   It is alleged that Donovan and Jermaine Richards would solicit cash or kind from sellers in the Spanish Town bus park.   On August 17, 2015, they approached Paul Madden and received phone cards instead of cash. However, later that day the brothers demanded another card and when their needs were not met, an argument ensued and Donovan is alleged to use a machete to chop Paul on his left shoulder where he received 40 stitches.   The Crown also outlined that the brother's father also was an extortor in the park and retired and passed down the trade to them.   Jermaine, who was previously granted bail, had his extended while Donovan was remanded.   Their case will again be mentioned on January 26, 2016.
