Pastor is remanded to jail on a new charge of fraud – reportedly committed after he was already on bail

Garvin Otto, the pastor who is facing several fraud charges, has
found himself in trouble with the law yet again and, this time, has
been remanded to His Majesty’s Prison. 

Otto, who was charged with fraudulent conversion, appeared in the
St. John’s Magistrates Court before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh on
Monday, June 19.

Because Otto already has a slew of charges awaiting committal for
trial in the High Court, Walsh did not consider bail. Additionally, she
refused bail since this recent offence was committed after the pastor
had been bailed on previous charges. 

In this latest instance, it is alleged that the young man defrauded a
fellow pastor, Billy Roman, of the sum of $15,120, an offence that
reportedly occurred on March 21.

Reportedly, Charlesworth Tabor, Otto’s lawyer, arrived late at court
on Monday; and when he made inquiries about his client, he was
told that the accused had been remanded. 

However, Otto can make application for bail, through his attorney, in
the High Court. 

It was only week that he appeared before the court and was served
with all six case files.
