River Gee County Attorney has disclosed the re-arrest of murder convict, Jerry Queaty, by the Joint Security in Sinoe County.
Attorney Wesseh A. Wesseh made the disclosure in Fish Town, River Gee on Tuesday.
He said Queaty has since been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and economic sabotage at the Sarpo National Park.
He was earlier turned over to the River Gee County Justice Ministry office, “because the crime he committed in River Gee supersedes the alleged crime he committed in Sinoe.”
Wesseh said it was during the trial of murder convict Queaty at the Greenville Magisterial Court that information surfaced about his alleged escaped from a prison cell in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County after being sentenced to eight years imprisonment by the Fish Town Magisterial Court for the murder of the late Wesseh Jolopo in River Gee.
Attorney Wesseh applauded the County Attorney of Sinoe, Cllr. John Gabriel, for the information that led to the re-arrest of Queaty and pointed out that after serving his sentence for the crime he committed in River Gee, he could be re-arrested and tried for the crime he allegedly committed in Sinoe.
In 2005, Jerry and his brother Fester Queaty were sentenced to eight years imprisonment by the Fish Town Magisterial Court for murdering the late Wesseh Jolopo on the Barrobo-Fish Town Highway and were sent to serve their jail sentences in Grand Gedeh due to the lack of a prison facility in River Gee at the time. They later broke jail and fled to the Ivory Coast.
They were re-arrested in Ivory Coast in 2008 and sent back to Grand Gedeh County to be prosecuted. Authorities in Grand Gedeh immediately sent Jerry and his brother Fester, back to River Gee, but due to the lack of a prison facility in the county, they were turned over to surety Isaac Tolbert. They later escaped from Mr. Tolbert, and have since been at large. LINA
