Watchman pleads not guilty to wounding workmate

COURT TODAY BLOCKA watchman was found not guilty by acting Magistrate Alliston Seale today, in a matter where he was accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding a workmate.

Monroe McDonald Pilgrim, of Airy Hill, St Joseph, pleaded not guilty to the July 2013 offence.

After hearing the summary trial, acting Magistrate Seale determined that Pilgrim was not guilty of wounding Owen Weir.

Evidence during the trial revealed that Pilgrim was renting accommodation from Weir and had arrears. Weir approached him at work about the money owed and ended up putting his finger in Pilgrim’s face.

A fight ensued and, according to eyewitnesses, it was parted more than once but Weir went back at Pilgrim again.
