Good samaritan saves Young
By the time 17-year-old Imani Kumba Biko Young reached the District ‘A’ Traffic Court today, someone had already compensated minibus owner Mohamed Adams for damage which the teenager caused to a vehicle belonging to Adams just over a month ago.
The Belfield Land, Black Rock, St. Michael lad had already pleaded guilty to the offence before acting Magistrate Elwood Watts when the matter came up for hearing. However, Adams informed the court that he had received compensation in the sum of $2,100 for the damage to the vehicle and, as a result, he was no longer interested in pursuing the matter.
The case was dismissed. Young reportedly damaged the minibus with a rock on June 30. Magistrate Watts advised him to be grateful that the complainant had decided against pursuing the matter. He also urged the young man to behave himself.
