Text lands conductor in hot water

The next time Tony Antonio Seon Smith sees a text message that he does not like, he will have a $900 reminder to keep his cool.

Smith, of Murray Land, Clevedale Road, Black Rock, St Michael, pleaded guilty to assaulting Dionne Daniel, occasioning her actual bodily harm, on July 12.

The 29-year-old conductor appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Thursday morning.

Outlining the details of the case, Prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons told the court that the accused and the complainant are in a relationship and live in the same house.

Yesterday, Smith saw a text message in the complainant’s phone and choked her and dragged her, by the hair, through the house. He also smashed her phone against the wall and put her belongings outside, the Prosecutor said.

Although Smith pleaded guilty to the charge, Daniel, told the court she only was interested in being compensated for the phone and her injuries.

Cuffy-Sargeant subsequently ordered Smith to pay Daniel $500 for the phone, $200 for the injuries he caused, and a further $200 to the court, all to be paid by September 13.

    wow thats when some women put themselves with these so call men. If a woman texting another man, then that means her life at home is not going the way it should, but in any case he had no right to put his hands on her, and the woman should move on, why would you want to live in a house where the man want to treat you like a wild animal. Let him go live by himself, because he have no respect for a woman, and next time it will be worse. Glad the court make him pay.

      Actually, with the exception of our closest primate relative, the chimpanzee, wild animals treat their females with respect.

    this is a serious matter, I think that the Magistrate should have dragged his wallet through the court, the fines were too small, I am sure that on the next occasion she is going to before the court for causing his death, mark my word, make note of those two names.
