The 55 year old tanker driver who was charged after he allegedly took his licensed firearm into a polling station in St. Catherine on election day, made his first appearance in court Tuesday.
Ian Walters, who is represented by attorney Peter Champagnie, pleaded not guilty to the allegation that he breached election day laws.
It was reported that Mr. Walters went to a polling station in Thompson Pen to vote when he was approached by the police who were alerted that he had a firearm.
He was taken into custody and later offered $150,000 station bail.
Mr. Walters is to return to court on November 4.
