Man jailed for teen’s assault

todays courtGarcia Ian Wiltshire began a nine-month jail term today after he was sentenced by the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court for assaulting a teenaged girl.

Wiltshire, of Browne’s Gap, Sargeants Village, Christ Church, pleaded guilty to the offence last month. He was remanded to HMP Dodds and reappeared today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

Sergeant Neville Reid told the court the 13-year-old complainant was at a hair salon in Sargeants Village when Wiltshire entered the salon, smelling of alcohol.

He tried to speak to the complainant and another female friend, also a juvenile. He asked the teen for a kiss but she refused and pushed him away, later telling her mother what had transpired.

They subsequently reported the matter to officers who were passing by in a police van.

Despite his guilty plea, Wiltshire explained to the court last time that he did not “know anything about any kiss”. He said then that he had exchanged an embrace with the child after she and another friend said they wanted to be an attorney and a doctor, respectively.

Wiltshire said he spent time encouraging them “to be number one” and to “be the best that they can be”. It was after that verbal exchange that he opened his arms, the girl walked into them and they hugged.
