Duo accused of drug trafficking freed of charges
A Tucville, Georgetown couple walked out of the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court freed of charges relating to a $28.5M drug case.
Magistrate Judy Latchman dismissed the charges against Colin Denny, 37, and his reputed wife, Malika Softleigh, 35, who were accused of trafficking 57.8608 grammes of cannabis between November 14, 2017, and November 15, 2017, at their home.
They were out on $400,000 bail during the trial. The Magistrate in dismissing the case noted that the Prosecutor for the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), Kunyo Sandiford failed to prove that the defendants had knowledge, possession or trafficked the drugs, which has a street value of $28.5M.
The duo was represented by Attorney James Bond. The CANU had reported that the drugs were found in three 100-pound gas cylinders at the couple’s home.
