‘Spanish Man’ jailed for escape
Terry Joseph, who is one of a gang accused of a series of pirate attacks, was yesterday handed a three-year jail term for escaping from police custody.
Joseph, 29, of Lot 6 Farm Squatting Area, East Bank Demerara, pleaded guilty when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry on a charge of escaping lawful custody.
The former seaman, who is facing 15 charges related to acts of piracy, was held after initially eluding capture. He was caught by police officers after a wanted bulletin was issued for his arrest and charges were laid against him in September.
