Woman denies assaulting officer
A Twenty-four-year-old Asha Stephanie Phyllis Moosai, was placed on $3,000 bail after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today on a charge of assaulting a police officer.
Standing in the dock before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, the student, of Apartment B Palm Court, Wanstead Heights, St Michael, denied the charge. The case was adjourned until May 17.
The offence was allegedly committed against Constable Ronnie Archer on February 29.
Meanwhile, in the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court, Deshawn Shaquille Harper was not required to plead to an indictable charge of causing serious bodily harm to Derick Reid on February 27, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him.
Following an appearance before Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch, the 21-year-old youth from 1st Avenue Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael was remanded to HMP Dodds until March 7.
Police prosecutor, Sergeant Azel Skeete, objected to Harper getting bail, citing grounds that Reid, the complainant, was still hospitalized and the offence was a serious one.
