Graham held for repeatedly beating his ex-girlfriend
When he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant two-weeks ago, Simeon Levi Graham was warned to keep out of trouble.
However, he found himself back in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today, and, as a result, will spend the next 28 days on remand at HMP Dodds.
Graham, 27, of Clarkes Avenue, Bayville, St Michael, pleaded guilty to assaulting Kaydeesha Layne on March 26, 2016.
In presenting the facts, police prosecutor Sergeant Neville Reid revealed that Graham and Layne were in a relationship, which ended in February of this year.
On the day in question, Graham went to the home of the complainant uninvited around 10:30 p.m. and began questioning her about her whereabouts.
After she refused to answer him, he began hitting her about the face with a pep bottle and slapping her to the back of her head with his hand.
She managed to escape and run to a nearby bar where she reported the matter to the police.
Upon returning home later that night, Layne was reportedly assaulted again by Graham, who slammed her head onto the side of the house.
This time, though, he was apprehended by police who had returned to continue their investigations into the matter.
He was subsequently arrested and charged.
In his defence, Graham admitted to using cocaine, and asked the court for a chance to be admitted to Verdun House to help kick his habit.
He will return to court on April 25 for sentencing.
