Accused KFC robber arraigned
The man police have accused of attempting to rob the Kentucky Fried Chicken(KFC)restaurant, Oakes Field earlier this week, was arraigned in a Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
Jeremy Kemp, 23, was charged with the attempted robbery of Nadine Kemp on December 13.
He was not required to plead to the charge. Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez said a preliminary inquiry will be held to determine whether there is sufficient evidence for the case to proceed to the Supreme Court.
The case was transferred to Court 5 and adjourned until December 22.
Bail was denied yesterday, as Kemp was convicted in 2008 of illegal gun and ammunition possession.
Kemp’s lawyer Michael Kemp claimed that his client was the”subject of excessive force meted out by the police force.”
Kemp further claimed that his client, who was in police custody since Monday, had been beaten, gun butted to the head and stomped.
