Jean-Marie to enrol in anger management
That order was given to Ryan St Abeean Jean-Marie, a resident of 4th Avenue Pickwick Gap, St Michael when he returned before acting Magistrate Elwood Watts today for the continuation of his case.
Watts had adjourned the matter last week because he wanted to hear from the complainant.
The court was told by the police prosecutor about a quarrel which occurred between Jean-Marie and his former girlfriend, and how he had snatched her handbag and ran off. When he returned it later, it had $100 less inside. When the woman questioned him about it, he pulled a gun on her.
Jean-Marie, a caretaker, pleaded guilty to charges of robbery and assault. However, he insisted that he only took $20 and there was no gun involved.
The woman told the court today that there was a gun involved and that Jean-Marie had also slapped her in the face at the time of the incident.
Watts therefore told Jean-Marie to enrol in the anger management classes at the Psychiatric Hospital immediately and return to court on August 19 with the details.
He is expected to be sentenced then.
