A dispute between siblings has resulted in a 28-day stint for one of them at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds. Anthony Devon Carrington, of sixth Avenue, New Orleans, pleaded not guilty to assaulting his sister Latoya Oneale and occasioning her actual bodily harm on January 1, 2018.
The 31-year-old, who was also charged with possession of cannabis, appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick this morning in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
Sergeant Neville Reid objected to bail on the grounds that the defendant had failed to comply with a previous court order for him to present himself to the District ‘A’ Police Station three days a week.
The prosecutor also expressed concern for the safety of the alleged victim, as both parties resided in the same home.
However, Carrington strongly denied the prosecutors claim that he had outstanding matters before the court. before a check of the court records revealed that he had failed to pay a $752 fine to the District ‘E’ Magistrates’ Court and that a warrant had also been issued for his arrest.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded the accused until January 30, 2018. He also referred the issue of the unpaid fine back to its original jurisdiction.
