first_imgTwenty-one-year-old Rick Sewcharran who is accused of allegedly pushing his girlfriend, Sasia Adams, out of his moving car which resulted in her death was on Tuesday released on $500,000 bail when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts slapped with a manslaughter charge.He was not required to plead to the indictable charge. The Golden Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD) resident was represented by prominent Attorney Sanjeev Datadin in association with former State Prosecutor Siand Dhurjon.In his bail application, Datadin told Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan that his client has been cooperating with Police ever since his arrest.Noting that his client has no prior brushes with the law, the Attorney related that based on what he was told, the female opened the car door and fell out.He observed that there was CCTV footage of what he deemed “an unfortunate incident”. Moreover, the Attorney stated that there was no evidence that his client acted deliberately to cause the woman’s demise. Datadin noted that Sewcharran was interviewed by Police for more than three hours and that he led them to the scene and recounted what happened.Although the prosecution had no objection to the accused being allowed his pre-trial liberty, Sewcharran was ordered to lodge his passport and report to Alberttown Police Station every Friday. The 21-year-old will next appear in Court One on July 13, 2018.Adams, an Essequibo native, resided at East Street, Georgetown and she succumbed to head injuries on June 12 after falling out of a moving car at Lamaha Street, Georgetown. Based on initial reports, her boyfriend reportedly told Police that the teen fell out of his moving vehicle around 20:00h on June 10, two days prior.However, alternative versions of what transpired during the incident surfaced as the still conscious Adams had related to doctors that she fell down. Another account had her jumping from the moving car.The post-mortem examination conducted by veteran State Pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh indicated that the woman died as a result of blunt trauma to the head. No mention of her dying from injuries consistent with a vehicular accident was disclosed or reported.Investigators revealed that it appeared as though the woman was struck to her head and then pushed out of the moving car, resulting in her sustaining severe head injuries. The now deceased woman was employed at the Ramada Hotel as a front desk clerk.last_img read more

Buchanan made No. 1 error: allowing start of Civil War

The second worst mistake, the survey found, was Andrew Johnson’s decision just after the Civil War to side with Southern whites and oppose improvements in justice for Southern blacks beyond abolishing slavery. “We continue to pay” for Johnson’s errors, wrote Michael Les Benedict, an Ohio State University history professor emeritus. Lyndon Johnson earned the No. 3 spot by allowing the Vietnam War to intensify, Gregg said. Where does Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal rank? Many scholars said it belonged at No. 10, saying that it probably affected Clinton’s presidency more than it did American history and the public. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – From engaging in sexual relations with an intern to letting the Vietnam War escalate, U.S. presidents have been blamed for some egregious errors. So who had the worst blunder? President James Buchanan, for failing to avert the Civil War, according to a survey of presidential historians organized by the University of Louisville’s McConnell Center. The survey’s top 10 presidential blunders were announced Saturday during a Presidents Day weekend conference called “Presidential Moments.” “We can probably learn just as much – or maybe even more – by looking at the mistakes rather than looking at why they were great,” said political scientist and McConnell Center Director Gary Gregg. The rest of the top 10 blunders: 4: Woodrow Wilson’s refusal to compromise on the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. 5: Richard Nixon’s involvement in the Watergate coverup. 6: James Madison’s failure to keep the United States out of the War of 1812 with Britain. 7: Thomas Jefferson’s Embargo Act of 1807, a self-imposed prohibition on trade with Europe during the Napoleonic Wars. 8: John F. Kennedy allowing the Bay of Pigs Invasion that led to the Cuban Missile Crisis. 9: Ronald Reagan and the Iran-Contra Affair, the effort to sell arms to Iran and use the money to finance an armed anti-communist group in Nicaragua. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
