Greaves completes prison sentence

COURT TODAY BLOCKIt was a case of the magistrate keeping his word.

So when Shakir Greaves returned to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today after completing a three month prison sentence at HMP Dodds, Magistrate Douglas Frederick granted him $5,000 bail on a remaining charge.

However, bail came with conditions for the man who was involved in an incident with his former girlfriend and her mother at the Valery high-rise complex in Brittons Hill, St Michael last May.

Greaves, a 24-year-old painter of Block 9E Division Drive, Eden Lodge, St Michael has been banned from going “anywhere near the Valery high-rise complex”. He is not allowed to approach his ex-girlfriend.

Greaves originally faced charges of intentionally destroying Jalisa Springer’s cellular phone case and assaulting her on May 5 and then unlawfully and maliciously wounding the woman’s mother, Cherral Springer on May 11.

He was not required to plead to his final charge of causing serious bodily harm to Jalisa Springer with intent to maim, disfigure and disable her on May 12.

“You have spent your sentence and I told you if your sentence expires and the prosecution is not ready, I would give you bail. So I’m
keeping my word,” Magistrate Frederick told Greaves.

“Thank you Sir,” the convicted man replied.

After Greaves pleaded guilty to three of the four counts last May, Station Sergeant Neville Watson told the court that Greaves and Springer were in a four-year relationship which ended.

Greaves had apparently been accusing the woman of being involved with someone named Angus.

On the day of the incident, Greaves went to the woman’s home and began questioning her. He then grabbed her cellular phone and tried searching through it; when that was unsuccessful, he tried to force Springer to unlock the phone but she refused.

Greaves then took the phone and damaged both the device and its case, which he threw outside. He also hit the woman in her head several times with his fist, the prosecutor said, before jumping on her. She suffered soft tissue injuries to her forehead and abdomen.

Greaves was later sentenced by Magistrate Frederick to three months in jail after considering his early guilty plea and
pre-sentencing report.   

His final matter was adjourned today until March 21.
