Griffith faces three more offences

COURT TODAY BLOCKChad Antonio Griffith entered the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today without an attorney but pleas by a young lawyer on behalf of the 18-year-old very likely affected the outcome.

The Perfection Road, Bush Hall, St Michael youth denied all three charges against him that allegedly occurred on March 31 this year.

They are that he damaged a car bumper belonging to Yolande Gittens valued at $903. 23, that he assaulted Rommel Jordan occasioning him actual bodily harm and that he threatened the same complainant by telling him, “I gine cut you up tonight”.

The prosecutor objected to bail, stating that the matters before the court related to an ongoing feud between the two men. Although Jordan is not the owner of the car, he was in charge of it at the time of the alleged damage.

Sergeant Neville Reid also informed the court that the accused already had three matters pending before the same court and he therefore felt that the complainant and the society needed to be protected from Griffith “at this time”.

Asked to respond to the prosecutor, the accused rubbed his head and remained speechless. He was directed by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to sit on a bench and think about his response.

Later, appearing as a friend of the court, attorney-at-law Renee Peterkin explained to the magistrate that Griffith had enrolled in the Skills Training Programme, was about to start training and had no previous convictions.

He was eventually granted $6,000 bail and told to return to the court on June 23.
