Man must pay ex-girlfriend

COURT TODAY BLOCKA man who beat his ex-girlfriend recently has until March 8 next year to find $675 to pay her.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant ordered Anderson Ricardo Forde to pay the woman that amount in compensation when he reappeared before her earlier today.

Yesterday, Forde, of Lot 117 Lower Burney, St Michael, admitted assaulting the woman and occasioning her actual bodily harm on November 28. He pleaded guilty to the charge in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court and was granted $6 000 bail until today.

On the date of the incident, the complainant was standing along River Road, St Michael waiting for her husband, when someone came from behind and grabbed her, throwing her to the ground. The assailant also kicked and cuffed her several times before taking away her cellular phone and throwing it in a pool of water.

After the magistrate learnt of the woman’s injuries, she ordered Forde, 22, to repay $175 for the damaged cellular phone and $500 compensation for the injuries the victim suffered.

    That’s a shame because $650 isn’t any money for assault and the time limit is ridiculous. I think he has family or friends in the justice system pulling a few strings.. That’s the only reason I can think of..

    I swear the magistrates here in Barbados are truly sniffing on something. How can the magistrate ask for 6000 bail and 675 compensation. Darn insulting to us women!

    This judge is a fool, how can you give a $6000 bail and then give him until March to pay a mere $675, this is no deterrent to him or any other idiot that thinks it’s fine to beat a woman. What is wrong with these judges ? are they given some weed before they go in to court ?
