Four young women appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today, on a charge of using unlawful violence toward Nisha Craigwell on June 6 and displaying such conduct that it caused others present to fear for Craigwell’s safety.
Melissa Dana Howell, 22, of Lot 16 Six Men’s, St Peter, Shakela Latoya Greaves, 20, of Half Moon Fort, St Lucy, Ashelle Jalissa Juliane Bryan, 20, a nurse of Crab Hill, St Lucy and Shanicea Ayana Aisha Bynoe, a clerk-typist of Plumgrove, Lodge Road, Christ Church all pleaded before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
Howell also faces a separate charge of unlawfully assaulting Shamika Sealy on the same date, which she denied.
Bynoe, who was represented by attorney-at-law Desmond Sands, pleaded not guilty. However the other three accused admitted to the joint charge.
Acting Station Sergeant Neville Watson had no objection to bail for the women but reserved the reading of the facts, since one of them had pleaded not guilty.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick granted bail to Howell at $2 500 and the others at $2 000. They all return to court on August 27.
