Describing himself as an angry teenager, Kyle Shaquielle Belgrave was today remanded to the Psychiatric Hospital for anger management counseling.
The 18-year-old of Wavell Gardens, Wavell Avenue Black Rock, St Michael, pleaded guilty to assaulting his sister, Shanika Belgrave, following an altercation at their family home.
When asked why by Magistrate Douglas Frederick, Belgrave answered: “Because I get angry quickly”.
He went on to explain: “I have a lot of hate . . . just at the whole world because of my eye . . . I feel like nobody cares about me”.
The accused had his left eye shut on entering the District “A” Magistrates’ Court and the entire time he stood in the dock.
He admitted that he had spoken to a counselor while at the Juvenile Detention Centre but had not received any more professional help.
Magistrate Douglas soon concluded that the young man had several goals, one of which was to become a businessman, but his personal issues were hampering his development.
“Let me get some Government-provided counseling for you . . . an assessment at the Psychiatric Hospital,” Frederick said as he explained his decision.
Belgrave returns to court on June 24, 2016.
