Compensation of $750 and a bond to keep the peace was imposed on a St Michael man who assaulted a woman last year.
Jamal Marville Harper, 32, of Rock Hampton Road, Jackson, St Michael had earlier pleaded guilty to assaulting Angela Sealy, occasioning her actual bodily harm on September 30, 2015.
When he returned for sentencing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today, Magistrate Douglas Frederick ordered him to pay $750 in compensation forthwith, or spend three months in prison.
The money was paid.
He was also placed on a bond for six months. If he breaches it, he will spend six months in prison.
