A man who pleaded guilty to assaulting a ZR driver then pelting rocks at the vehicle, told Magistrate Sandra Rawlins that he had taken “matters into his own hands,” after the complainant had allegedly attacked him the previous day.
When 24-year-old Rachad Jemmott appeared in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this morning, Station Sergeant Carrison Henry told the court that on November 28, 2018, Jemmott cuffed Corey Griffith in his face twice when he stopped to pick up passengers. He left and then returned with two rocks and hurled one of them through the vehicle, which belongs to Troy White. Jemmott, who has no prior convictions, was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service. However, Rawlins ordered that summons be issued for White and Griffith in order to make a determination on compensation.
