The court trial of football officials, Derrick “Pretty Boy” Edwards and Danny Benjamin, which was scheduled to be heard Monday May 21, has been postponed. The trial was moved to May 29 at the request of the prosecution which said that it was not adequately prepared.
This information was disclosed to OBSERVER media yesterday by a source connected to the case in Jamaica.
Edwards was the assistant football coach and Benjamin the equipment manager for the Antigua and Barbuda National Football team. The two individuals were apprehended at the Norman Manley International Airport on March 26.
They were arrested after 3.5 pounds of marijuana were discovered in the team’s luggage as they were attempting to board a flight to return to Antigua.
Both officials have pleaded not guilty to the charges, one of which is the unlawful possession of marijuana.
Benjamin is claiming that another team member committed the crime, and he is calling on the local football association to conduct an investigation.
