As family and friends gather today to pay their final respects to 24-year-old Annik Lawrence, the court case stemming from her death has gathered pace. 

Jameel Adams, 30, appeared in the St. John’ Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he was charged with causing death by dangerous driving in the accident that claimed the Grays Farm woman’s life five days before her 25th birthday.

Adams, accompanied by his lawyer Leon Symister, was granted bail by Magistrate Dexter Wason.

The Bandals man’s bond was set at $50,000 with a $5000 cash component. 

Adams was also required to present two sureties to the court, report to the police station nearest to him three days a week and surrender all his travel documents.

His driver’s licence was also suspended.

The defendant’s committal hearing was set for 23rd February, 2023.

On 14th November, 2022, Lawrence was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Adams who reportedly lost control of the vehicle on All Saints Road which caused the pair to fall off.

Both Lawrence and Adams were rushed to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.

Adams escaped with minor injuries, however the mother of two was less fortunate. She lost her life shortly after arriving at the hospital.
