Conductor free to go

COURT TODAY BLOCKA wounding matter against a route taxi conductor was dismissed yesterday after the accused made a submission before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

Jerry Brian Taylor of Keiser Hill, Christ Church was accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Junior Ward on April 19, 2013.

A summons had been issued in May for the complainant to attend court on Wednesday but he did not show up. The summons indicated that Ward had not been found at his given address.

On hearing that, Taylor informed that court that, “I have been coming here all the time. I get here before the doors open. I have to miss work to come here and I have three daughters to support.

“The complainant still lives at the same house at the corner of Water Street,  “so how come nobody can’t find he?” asked Taylor who attended court on every occasion.

    Could it be he was working or not opening the door ? so basically it’s ok to maliciously wound as the court will give up if they can’t find you !!!

    I would think that it should be in the complainants best interest to be aware of the court dates. We must help others to help ourselves. Also, this might be the technique employed and used quite successfully it would appear by, how often it is used by the system, to punish the accused without actual court deliberation. The accused is punished by lost of income, time away from work and inconvenience of attending or not court dates.

    It seems like one can go out and “share some blows” at will and then tell the court “I got children to feed” . Did he gave that any though before he fly off the handle ? .
