What the mother of Clarence Raekwon Williams has to tell the District “A” Magistrates’ Court tomorrow could prove pivotal in a case against the 19-year-old – who is currently on remand at HMP Dodds.
Williams is charged with assaulting police officers Philip Wiles and Jamar McCollin and causing them actual bodily harm on May 11, 2016. He was charged with the offence after his mother drove him to a police station requesting assistance after he had a confrontation with her.
“Give me a chance, please! [It was] the argument with my mother that got me here to start with,” Williams pleaded today with Magistrate Douglas Frederick who cautioned him about blaming his parent.
“I also want to apologize to the police officer that I attacked,” he added. “I want to do what my father didn’t do for me, Sir, and be there for my son.
“I want to be a family man and I got bills to pay and there is a need to take an ease off my family. Sir, I was wrong. I put myself in that situation and I would like the court to get me some anger management classes, Sir.”
However, Frederick told the #33 Coverley Terrace, Christ Church resident that he needed to hear first from his mother on the matter. She is scheduled to appear before the court tomorrow when the case comes up again.
