Sean Chewitt, 23, pleaded not guilty to the charges when he appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

He is charged with dishonestly obtaining items from Jennifer Cheverton of Campden Park, amounting to over $30,657.07.

Chewitt is alleged to have committed the acts between October 14, 2013 and December 18, 2013.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Glenford Gregg did not object to Chewitt being granted bail, but asked that conditions be placed. Gregg told the court that on summary conviction, Chewitt could be sentenced to two years imprisonment and 10 years on indictment.

Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias ordered that Chewitt surrender his travel documents, report to the Central Police Station twice per week and have no communication with the virtual complainant.

The matter was adjourned to February 7, 2014 for hearing.(KW)
