Corbin to pay $2 300 debt

COURT TODAY BLOCKDa-mon Lemar Corbin did not wait his turn in the queue. Had he done so, he probably would not have incurred a $2 300 debt which he now has to honour.

The District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today ordered the 20-year-old Isolation Road, Belleplaine, St Andrew resident to pay Samuel Chaplin $1,900 of that amount within one week as compensation for damaging his spectacles last Saturday.

The remaining $400 for the pain and suffering which he caused the complainant must be paid by January 27.   

Presenting the facts, Sergeant Janice Ifill told the court that Chaplin was in the queue at the Princess Alice Bus Terminal last Saturday, when Corbin appeared and stepped up in front of him.

Chaplin tried to prevent him from doing so and Corbin hit him in the face and head. The complainant fell backward and struck his head on the pavement. The two men then became engaged in a scuffle which others parted.

Chaplin’s glasses were damaged during the incident.

Corbin was placed on a bond to keep the peace for six months. A breach of that bond will mean a $1 500 forthwith fine with an alternative of 12 months in jail.
