Teen on assault charges

A daily curfew has been imposed on a 16-year-old female who appeared in court yesterday on several assault charges.

Brittany Joseph Odle of Block 4D, Farm Road, Deacons Farm, St Michael pleaded guilty before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to unlawfully assaulting Shekhina Holford on June 1 and again on May 25, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

However, she denied that she assaulted Hannah Holford the following day, or that she destroyed a cellular phone belonging to Shekhina Holford without lawful excuse on May 25.

Police Prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons had no objections to bail, but Odle’s freedom came with conditions.

Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant warned her to stay away from the complainants and to be indoors by 6 p.m. every evening. She must not leave her home before 6 a.m.

The teenager was granted $5,000 bail, which she secured with one surety. She will return to court on September 27.

In a separate case before the District ‘A’ Court magistrate, Theodore Dwayne Cumberbatch denied a criminal damage charge.

The Tamarind Road, Black Rock, St Michael resident is accused of damaging a watch and a cellular phone belonging to Ria Charles, without lawful excuse, on June 10.

The prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons said the Crown was not objecting to bail but urged the magistrate to attach conditions.

Cumberbatch was released on $8,000 bail, which he secured with one surety. Before he left the court, the magistrate warned him to stay away from Charles.

The accused man must also report to the Black Rock Police Station every Wednesday before noon with valid identification.
