Football officials, Derrick “Pretty boy” Edwards and Danny Benjamin, who are in Jamaica before the court on drug charges, had their house arrest lifted this week.
Both men were arrested in Jamaica on March 26 at the Norman Manley International Airport after 3.5 pounds of marijuana was found in the team’s luggage.
Edwards and Benjamin were attempting to board a flight to Antigua just a day after drawing with Jamaica, 1-1, in a friendly match.
Edwards is the assistant coach and Benjamin, the equipment manager for the Antigua and Barbuda men’s football team, the Benna Boys.
Both men now have a little more freedom since the lifting of the house arrest this past Wednesday.
However, in lifting the house arrest order, the judge imposed a curfew that stipulates that they have to be indoors between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Both men, who continue to proclaim their innocence, were also able to secure a change of residence from the Jamaica Football Association Clubhouse to the home of one of Edwards’ relatives.
The trial date for both men is set for May 21.
