Cop gets warning from magistrate
A police witness who failed to turn up in court today after being previously warned to do so, could look out for another warning to appear before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on September 15 in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
Sergeant Wingrove Headley is required to testify in a case where Melissa Natasha Mayers, a 27-year-old unemployed St Michael woman, is charged with obstructing the said officer in the execution of his duties and a 35-year-old unemployed City resident, Garvey Bobby Jaunai, is accused of assaulting Headley on March 1, 2014.
When the case came up for hearing today, the police prosecutor informed the magistrate that Headley had been warned to appear today but had failed to do so. Towards the end of the hearing, Cuffy-Sargeant instructed the prosecutor to warn the officer before September 15 when the case comes up for hearing again.
In addition to the assault charge against Jaunai, the Combermere Street, City resident is accused of unlawful possession, possession and trafficking of cocaine on August 23, 2011. Jaunai, who worked as a salesman then but is now unemployed, and Mayers, of Sisnett Road, Bannister Land are both represented by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim.
