Call Center Agent Granted Bail for Cyber Crime

Call Center Agent Granted Bail for Cyber Crime

A call center agent, Brian Lee Perriott was granted an eight thousand dollar bail plus surety of the same amount after he changed his guilty plea to not guilty.  It was expected that the 26-year-old would have been sentenced today after pleading guilty to three counts of offences under the Cyber Crime Act on July 5.   Ironically, Attorney Orson Elrington who was recently a victim of cybercrime, represented Perriott on behalf of Senior Counsel Hubert Elrington.  Elrington was able to convince the magistrate to allow the change in plea on the grounds that there were facts of the case not brought to light in the arraignment.  The prosecution had fought for further remand, but in the end, the magistrate granted the bail with several conditions including a hundred yard distance from the victim, no contact with the victim or the witnesses, and no discussing the case on social media platforms.  The backdrop to the case is that Perriott allegedly distributed visual material of his ex-girlfriend in the nude to the victim and a male friend with threats that he would distribute it further since she was breaking up with him.  If found guilty, Perriott faces up to five years in prison.
