Two women on assault charges

Two women accused of separate incidents of assault appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Thursday.

Maria Dona Wood and Lois Lorraine Yearwood were each granted $3,000 bail by Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

It is alleged that Wood, a shop owner of Lemanbelle, Salters, St George, assaulted Shanique Shepherd on April 29, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

There was no objection to bail from the police prosecutor after Wood denied the charge.

The 42-year-old accused was ordered to return to court on October 2.

Also reappearing in court on that date will be 48-year-old Yearwood.

The Thompson Road, Wavell Avenue, Black Rock Road, St Michael resident is accused of causing serious bodily harm to Shawn Francis on July 4, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable.

The self-employed woman was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

With no objections from the prosecutor, she was released on bail with one surety.

Meantime, a 35-year-old phone technician will have to successfully perform 80 hours of community if he wants to keep his criminal record clean.

Ron Casper Camille of Piper Avenue, Bayville, St Michael pleaded guilty in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court to having a rock in a public place, James Street, on January 18, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse.

Magistrate Frederick imposed the community service on the first-time offender after the police prosecutor outlined the facts.

He will return to court on August 6 for a progress report.
