Woman admits to sharing blows at reggae show

COURT TODAY BLOCKBeing a first-time offender is what saved Sandra Shonette Lynmarie Bourne from jail time on Monday.

The unemployed woman, 30, who resides at Parish Land, Christ Church admitted assaulting Shanelle Lorde and occasioning her actual bodily harm on April 19 this year.

She explained that she was at Reggae on the Beach when Lorde jumped on her back the first time and she ignored it, since they were all partying. Lorde did so a second time and she warned her; she also told Lorde that she believed she was doing it on purpose.

The complainant then came beside her, stepped on her foot and then asked her, ‘what the **** you gine do ‘bout it’.

That was when “I chuck she in she chest and kick she in she face,” Bourne explained.

However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick felt that the convicted woman showed no remorse, “sounded proud” of her bad behaviour and was “acting like a hero” when she had in fact done something bad.

“Your behaviour is very bad,” he said, “and the only thing saving you is the fact that you are not known”.

“So your mother was at the fete, you said?”

“Yes”, Bourne replied.

When the mother came to the witness stand, Magistrate Frederick asked her: “So you like fetes?”

“Yes please.”

“And you go to the same fetes that your daughter goes to?”

“Yes please,” the mother replied.

“She needs guidance but I don’t know if you can give it to her. You should be going to more mature things like Q in the Community or something. Let her go to the reggae and the dubs.”

A presentencing report was ordered on Bourne, who returns to court on Friday. She remains on $3 000 bail until then.

    It seem as though de Magistrate is a joker. Where do they get these idiots from? When someone commits a serious crime ,it should be dealt with like it is serious .All this nonsense about her mother going to parties with daughter in hardly revalent .Deal wid the matter and stop all the malarky.No wonder there are second and third offenders .Maybe that is why he says she is not well known ,to him that is.What an donkey ass statement from a magistrate

    The magistrate is correct. People need to respect their age. The same things you were doing at 25, you shouldn’t be doing at 50. That’s the problem with these so called mothers nowadays. They are dressing up their 10 year old the same way they dress. Respect yourself and respect your child. Behave like an adult and a parent. But how can you instill values and morals in your child if you don’t have any

      She is an adult child. She and her mum should be free to go out together wherever they want.

      You can paint every parent with the same brush.. you don’t know how this mother dresses or her moral behaviour, how dear you??? Do you have a personal relationship with them? as both of them are adults, who’s to tell them where to go?, this magistrate needs to do the job he’s paid for and leave giving advice for the social life of his witness.
      That other woman needed a beating she was being a bully and asked for what she got, why is she not being charge for starting the fight?

    Aha! So these reggae shows have been keeping people from being good parents. Too bad this magistrate didn’t let out the secret before the crime wave.

    One thing about good music when it hit you, you feel no pain. The lady warn her, she won’t hear, the vagabond deserve every blow and hopefully the compressed wax her ears have loosened.

    The instigator is at fault hence I see no reason how the accused and her mother were dealt with by the Magistrate. His comments was unCall for.In a democracy people have the right of choice with respect to the kind of entertainment they attend.
