The two Antiguan football officials who are before the court in Jamaica on drug charges are no longer under house arrest.
Assistant Coach of the Antigua and Barbuda National Football Team, Derrick “Pretty Boy” Edwards, and Equipment manager, Danny Benjamin, now have a little more freedom.
On Wednesday, a judge placed them on a curfew, stipulating that they must be indoors before 6 a.m. and after 7 p.m. The change has given the two men some relief.
They were also able to change where they were staying pending trial and are now living with one of Edwards’ relatives.
Both Edwards and Benjamin were arrested in Jamaica at the Norman Manley International Airport on March 26.
They were charged after a quantity of marijuana was found in the team’s luggage. Both men spent time in a Jamaica prison before they got bail and then they were eventually placed under house arrest.
The house arrest was lifted on Wednesday morning. OBSERVER media has learned that a trial date has been set for May 21.
When Edwards spoke on OBSERVER Radio on April 5, he asserted his and Benjamin’s innocence of the charges against them.
