Foul mouth lands man before court

courtAn accused man who has no fixed place to call home was Tuesday given a roof over his head – at least until December 12.

That’s when Corey Tull, 37, must return to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court after undergoing observation at the Psychiatric Hospital.

Tull, who admitted being treated at that mental institution previously, appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant charged with using abusive language to Constable David King in the execution of his duties, resisting arrest and assaulting the policeman.

Tull pleaded guilty to using the abusive language, but told the court he did not resist or assault any police officer.

Police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Reid, in relating the facts of the case to the court, said lawmen went to Pelican Village near the gift shops, to conduct investigations, when they observed Tull lurking in the area and behaving suspiciously. The accused was approached by plainclothes police officers who identified themselves and asked him to account for his presence.

In response, Tull used the offensive language that landed him before the court.

    This is a silly offence. If you are easily offended by foul-mouthed behaviour, then do not become a police officer.
    Say what you like about the UK, at least they have dropped this silly offence.
    Courts have not only thrown out this charges, but have spoken out against them. When you get a magistrate with an authoritarian personality, it makes matters worse.

    What a waste of the court’s time.
