GSU raid lands family in prison

Six persons were jointly charged and remanded to prison on Monday, after the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) found a handgun at their Raccoon Street Extension residence last Sunday. 

The sextet were arraigned before Magistrate Aretha Ford on charges of  possession of illegal firearm and ammunition, which in this case was an unlicensed 9mm pistol and 11 rounds of ammunition.

Family members Ludrick Ovado, Jane Ovado, Lanique Ovado and Cyril Ovado; and their friends Lionel Sampson and Evelyn Gibson, all pleaded not guilty.

In court, Cyril Ovado asked why Lionel don’t own up to the gun, because it’s his gun.

Also in court, Evelyn Gibson attempted to plea guilty to the charges, because she told the court that she has no one to take care of her children.

Magistrate Ford did not accept her guilty plea, which would have landed her in prison for a minimum of three years and a possible $10,000 or more fine.

None of the accused  were represented by an attorney.

All six accused persons are to return to court on October 8th, 2012.
