A 39-year-old man will spend a nine-day “cooling period” on remand at HMP Dodds.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant took the decision after the police prosecutor in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court strongly argued against the release of assault accused Anthony Oral White, of Small Land, Bridge Gap, St Michael.
White, an industrial cleaner, pleaded guilty to assaulting Kobe White occasioning him actual bodily harm on November 30.
However, he denied assaulting Kimberly Lovell on the same date, occasioning her actual bodily harm and damaging her shirt.
When it came time to discuss the issue of bail, police prosecutor Station Sergeant Janice Ifill objected to White’s release on the grounds that he had not “cooled down enough” since the incident; the nature and serious of the offences; and for the protection of society.
The prosecutor said the Crown feared that White may interfere with the investigation if granted bail.
However, in arguing for his release, White told the magistrate that he was not a threat to society.
But his plea was denied and he was remanded to prison until December 9.
