Complainant fed up with delay, drops case
Kimberly Ellis got so frustrated with the long delay in the court system that she decided to drop her case against Mario Deangelo Parris in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court.
Parris, 24, of #99 F, Parkinson Field, the Pine, St Michael had been charged with indecently assaulting Ellis on March 2, 2011.
But when she appeared in court today, the complainant told the court she was no longer interested in pursuing the matter.
When asked by Magistrate Douglas Frederick why she had come to that decision, a clearly frustrated Ellis replied, “I aint bout this nah more”.
It led to Frederick telling police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson that he had taken too long to start the matter.
However, in his defense, Watson said he had not been able to proceed with the case because he had not yet received the necessary documents.
The magistrate then dismissed the case.
