A Correia Air Services employee appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan slapped with two counts of fraud.
Orin McKay, 60, of Lot 2678 Manatee Place, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, pleaded not guilty to both charges.
The first charge stated that on July 26, 2012, with intent to defraud McKay endeavoured to obtain one individual half share at Lot 2678 Manatee Place, South Ruimveldt Park, by virtue of an application by way of deed of gift, knowing that the signature purporting to be that of the owner William Vibert Halley was forged.
The second charge alleged that on October 17, 2012 at the same location with intent to defraud, by way of transfer he forged the signature of the said William Vibert Halley.
McKay’s Attorney Kevon Bess related to the court that the alleged forged documents carried the signature of a Justice of the Peace (JP), who swore the document.
Bess argued that the document was prepared an attorney and the prosecutor should take into consideration the signed affidavit. He further requested reasonable bail for his client or for him to be released on his own recognizance.
Prosecutor Deniro Jones made no objections to bail but asked for a substantial amount. Chief Magistrate McLennan granted McKay $160,000 bail. The case will continue on June 15.
