A fourth student charged in Lester Vaughan school incident

A fourth child has been charged in connection with the May 17 beating of a Lester Vaughan schoolgirl.

The 13-year-old girl appeared before Magistrate Ian Weekes at the District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court today.

She pleaded not guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was granted $500 bail.

Her three co-accused made their second court appearance today.

The 15-year-old girl who had pleaded not guilty last Thursday, changed her plea and was remanded to the Government Industrial School (GIS).

The 14-year-old boy who was remanded to the GIS was granted $500 bail today; while 16-year-old Kaviah Smith, who spent the weekend at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds, was granted $1,500 bail.

All four will reappear in court on Thursday.

      Stupes with that recording the public and the police saw what went on and helped to find out who did what in the fight. Without that video you wouldnt even be here commenting.

    • Leroy May 30, 2017 at 2:49 pm

      You expect to charge someone for being in the video?
      Be thankful it was recorded and used to know the suspects.

    I will not condone what these children did,but let us not forget that they are still children and need discipline and love.In the heat of the moment sometimes we say things or do things that we later regret.

    Police can view the recording’s to see who was involved, make an arrest and work forward, but the videos will not be accepted in court… However Magistrates have social media… …. About time a strong message it sent to our children…. As de old people say if you control ya children de police will do it for wanna….

  21. Mr Rock usa May 29, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    Put a pen and paper in front of them and tell them to write name’s.go true the phones and start calling all tbe mumbers in there contacts. See how fast names start dropping. Just like the other post mention. Lock all of them up. Send a strong and clear message to these jackasses that this behaver will not be tolerated. Make them piss them self everything them see a police office in the neighborhood. Them little Wipper snappers will lost weight just by being frighten of getting lock up. My hat off to tbe hard working officers of the barbados police Department.

    More names going to get call now the list is not finish yet.I saw the video and more than four was beating that poor child. I hope that they will be an example for all the other bullies out there.

  24. Carson C Cadogan May 29, 2017 at 7:26 pm

    Nothing less than 5 years in jail for each one of them would do.

    These miscreants must be taught a lesson and others looking on would also know that Barbados is a country ruled by laws and when they are broken there will be serious consequences.

    • Leroy May 30, 2017 at 2:53 pm

      5 years?, there are still kids, the punishment must fit the crime, no custodial sentences should and would be given, that would totally ruin there lives, redemption is a must.

  25. Peter May 29, 2017 at 8:02 pm

    I am calling on the Minister of Education to immediately institute a mandatory Educational subject on these bad issues affecting our young school children. A once, perhaps twice a week subject period be instituted to teach these children the wrongs in Bullying, stealing, using alcohol, drugs, sex, and in-fighting. The art of studying also must be taught. Lots of children become failures because they do not know the discipline and how to study. While most of these comments are aiming at punishing these students who committed this bullying and beating act, I would rather make their parents collectively pay all the medical costs of the child that suffered at their hands, and place them in a boot camp for at least 18 months. Please Mr. Minister, don’t let these childrens’ lives be meaningless. Let them be taught to become achievers. Please. Their lives are already stained.
