Twenty-five year old Harrison Jacobs, a fisherman charged with murder, was freed of the charge today when a nolle prosequi was entered, indicating that the prosecution was unable to proceed. Crown Counsel Shanice Lovell entered the nolle prosequi because the main witness could not be located. Ten witnesses had testified for the prosecution and the main witness was the last left to testify. Jacobs’ trial, which began last week, was a trial without jury and the trial judge was Justice Adolph Lucas. Jacobs was charged with the murder of 20 year old Francis Figueroa which occurred around 2:30 a.m. on November 28, 2010, in the Boca Del Rio area of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The case for the prosecution was that Jacobs and the deceased had an altercation and during the altercation Jacobs beat Figueroa and left him lying injured on the side of the street. Jacobs left and returned with a firearm, walked up to Figueroa and shot him in his head. But although Jacobs was freed of the murder charge he was held in custody because he has a charge of wounding for which he was not offered bail because of the murder charge. Jacobs’ attorney, Michael Peyrefitte, said Jacobs is to go to court for the wounding on December 2, but he will try to secure bail for him before that date.
