A teenager who pleaded guilty Thursday to assaulting his mother, will not be allowed to attend any night events for the balance of the 2017 Crop Over season.
Eighteen-year-old Roeul Anderson Lavine Husbands of Knights Land, Westbury Road, St Michael committed the offence against his mother, Carla King on July 25, 2017.
However, it was the mother who appealed to Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in No.2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Thursday to get her son some help.
In outlining the facts of the case, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons explained that King came home on the day in question and found her house in an untidy state. When she attempted to speak to her son about the mess, he poked her in the left side of her face.
“When that clock strikes six you know where you supposed to be? You must be at home, you will not be attending any Crop Over events,” the magistrate said as she imposed a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew on Husbands.
The teenager, who was released on $2,000 bail with one surety, must also report to the probation office for a pre-sentencing report.
He returns to court on September 29, 2017.
