A son has been told that he cannot return home after assaulting his mother.
Tre Akeem Shakeil Standford had earlier pleaded guilty to assaulting Shirnell Standford on September 3 occasioning her actual bodily harm.
“I don’t want him back at my house!” Stanford told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, in the presence of her son who had spent three days at HMP Dodds for the offence.
Last Monday, the two were involved in an argument over money when the young man followed his mother into her bedroom.
She picked up a cleaver while he armed himself with a knife. In the melee, it was a kick to the left side of her body and a beating about the head and face, after she fell onto the bed, that landed him before the court.
Under questioning mother Standford told the magistrate that she had only been hit in the head but had not been injured.
The magistrate then ordered that the young man not to go to his mother’s premises and pay her $200 in one month or spend a month in prison. He must return to court on October 5 with his receipt to show proof of payment.
He must also be on his best behaviour of the next 12 months. If he finds himself in trouble with the law during that time he will have to pay a $1,500 forthwith fine or spend three months in prison.
