An 18-year-old and her grandmother appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today and were released on $2,500 bail.
It is alleged that the teen, Angel Shadiva Lewis and 58-year-old Janice Margaret Adams, both of No. 36 Oliver Haynes Avenue, Two Mile Hill, St Michael, assaulted a minor on March 1, occasioning him actual bodily harm.
They pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Lewis meantime was not required to plea to the charge that she unlawfully removed another minor from a primary school without her consent or the consent of someone legally authorised to do so.
The prosecutor objected to bail for the accused while their attorney-at-law Verla DePeiza argued for bail. But after weighing the submissions Magistrate Douglas Frederick ruled in favour of the defence.
The duo who return to court on July 30 have been warned not to venture on to the premises of the educational facility at which the alleged incident took place.
