A water quality officer charged with wounding the mother of his child was granted $2,500 bail when he appeared in court today.
It is alleged that Wesley Andrew Devere Walcott, of Foursquare Valley, St Philip unlawfully and maliciously committed the act against Joy Ann Brathwaite on December 31.
He was not required to plead to the charge as it allegedly occurred in the District ‘C’ jurisdiction. He will make his next appearance in that court on January 10.
In the meantime, Magistrate Douglas Frederick ordered that he stay away from the complainant and not go to her workplace.
“To tell the truth I don’t want to see she. I will send somebody for my child and when I have to take her back send the same person . . . . To get my child money every week, I will put money in one of my accounts and give her the bank card to access it,” Walcott told Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court before he was released.
