Sophia youth slapped with 3-year sentence for death of schoolgirl

Twenty-two-year-old Glenton Redmond was on Tuesday slapped with a three-year sentence for causing the death of Makeida Quick, a schoolgirl, in April 2022.
Redmond of E Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown, was found guilty following a trial presided over by Magistrate Rushelle Liverpool at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The convict was initially charged days after the fatal accident which occurred on April 10, 2022. He nevertheless pleaded not guilty to causing death by dangerous driving, driving an unlicensed motorcycle without insurance and certificate of fitness.
He was granted bail in the sum of $600,000.
However, on Tuesday, Redmond was found guilty of all of the charges and sentenced to three years’ imprisonment.

It was reported that Quick, a former student of Tucville Secondary School, was on her way to her grandmother when she was struck down by Redmond along the E Field Sophia main access road.
Reports are that the 14-year-old teen was standing at the side of the road when Redmond lost control of the motorcycle he was riding and collided with her.
Due to the injuries she received, the teen was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she was admitted and later succumbed. It was later found out that Redmond had taken the motorcycle without the owner’s consent.
