A 27-year-old man, charged six years ago with assault, has been freed of the charge.
Kentish Orlando Roberts, of No. 28, Regent Hill, Pinelands, St Michael, was accused of assaulting Kadija Layne on February 17, 2013, occasioning her actual bodily harm.
However, when the matter was called before Magistrate Douglas Frederick today the prosecutor had no file on the case in which Roberts has continuously maintained his innocence.
The matter was therefore dismissed for want of prosecution.
