Skeete free to go
Shamar Jovani Marcus Skeete, a 22-year-old tour representative, was found guilty by a Bridgetown magistrate’s court on Monday for refusing to leave the Police Certificate of Character office.
The offence was committed last September.
After hearing the evidence, Magistrate Douglas Frederick decided to reprimand
and discharge the St Michael man, considering that he was about to leave the island shortly to take up employment overseas.
According to evidence presented by police, Skeete went to get a police certificate of character but was told, on reaching the office, that the computer system was down. He subsequently became frustrated and boisterous, which led to his arrest.
Magistrate Frederick told the young man who, the court heard, had referred to himself more than once as a University of the West Indies (UWI) graduate, that he ought to be more humble.
