Ankle bracelet data will clear robbery suspect, lawyer claims
The lawyer for a man accused of armed robbery yesterday claimed that data from his ankle monitor could clear him.
Mark Cleare, 30, of Kemp Road, appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney accused of robbing Elliot Armbrister of a white 2008 Nissan Note on March 25.
Cleare was not required to enter a plea to the charge. The case against him will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment on May 24.
Cleare’s lawyer, Ian Cargill, said that his client was wearing an ankle bracelet when the crime occurred and the “ankle bracelet will exonerate him”.
Cleare has been denied bail.
