Sanjay Persaud of Sanjay’s Jewellery was granted bail in the sum of $500,000 by the Court of Appeal this morning. The court found that based on the written memorandum of reasons supplied by the magistrate, the appellant had a high likelihood of success at the eventual hearing of his appeal. The memorandum did not indicate any evidence that could reasonably support a guilty verdict. He is expected to be released from Camp St by 4 pm.
Persaud was sentenced on Friday to 58 months in jail for death by dangerous driving.
