Grant admits to damaging Chefette glass

courtWayde Grant, a 43-year-old man, of no fixed place of abode, will spend the next five months in Her Majesty’s Prison, Dodds, after pleading guilty Tuesday to damaging a glass panel belonging to Chefette Restaurants on June 24.

In presenting the facts, police prosecutor Neville Watson revealed that the accused was involved in a verbal dispute – which later became physical – with another man in the area of Fairchild Street, The City.

Watson said the street fight “snowballed” until the two men found themselves directly outside Chefette.

“It was then Sir that the accused Grant violently threw the other man on the glass, breaking it in the process,” the prosecutor revealed.

Asked whether he wanted to say anything on the issue, Grant said: “I dey sitting with my lighter . . . I dey smoking . . . and ting and he come and snatch my lighter. That’s how de fight start. But I didn’t throw him though . . . I didn’t [intend] to break the glass.”

In handing down his sentence, Magistrate Douglas Frederick took into consideration the four months Grant had already spent on remand.

    This is nonsense justice.

    I do not see this as a crime.

    Cheffette’s insurance is going to pay for this glass which was accidentally damaged (broken) by this homeless man.

    What is the logic behind sending this man to jail for 5 months for accidentally damaging the glass?

    Idiotic reasoning by the Magistrate.
