A dispute between two former lovers which resulted in one party being charged was dismissed on Wednesday when the complainant had a change of heart.
Rondell Trotman, 36, of Forde’s Road, St Michael, had been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend Jamelia Daley on December 11.
But when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Douglas Frederick, Daley said she no longer wanted to proceed with the matter.
After Frederick read the charge to Trotman as he stood in the dock, before he could get a chance to reply, Daley, the mother of his three-year-old baby asked to speak.
“We had a dispute, but I don’t want any charges filed against him,” she told the magistrate.
It left Frederick with little choice but to dismiss the matter.
