Teen on ammo charge

Eighteen-year-old Shakeem Ryan Dawson will on Friday appear before the District ‘F’ Magistrates’ Court on an ammunition charge.

The unemployed teen from Branchbury#1, St Joseph is currently on remand at HMP Dodds accused of possession of five rounds of ammunition on August 25.

He was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court over the weekend.

Magistrate Frederick transferred the case to District ‘F’ Court as it was outside his jurisdiction, but ordered a presentencing report into Dawson’s life after he pleaded guilty to assaulting Ashley Herbert.

According to the prosecutor, Herbert was walking through Hardwood Alley, The City, with her boyfriend on July 22 when Dawson and another man squeezed between the two of them.

The move led to a verbal altercation between Dawson and Herbert’s boyfriend and that turned physical. The woman intervened in a bid to stop the attack on her partner but Dawson held her from behind and pushed her against a door frame, hitting her face.

He was later arrested and charge.

Magistrate Frederick ordered the report on Dawson after having a conversation with the young man who is not known to the criminal justice system.

He returns to the No. 1 District ‘A’ Court on September 22.
