Father’s plea

Sandiford begs for forgiveness after admitting to assault

Forty-seven-year-old Paul Shurland Sandiford of 1st Avenue, Gills Gap, Eagle Hall, St Michael was today ordered to keep the peace for the next 12 months or face the possibility of a $1,000 fine or three months in prison.

Sandiford pleaded guilty to assaulting Yogendra Sawh and entering her premises on August 26 to pick avocadoes from a tree on his property, but which were hanging over the paling onto Sawh’s property.

It was the second time that Sandiford had conducted the offence, threatening his neighbour on both occasions with a knife, prosecutor Sergeant Vernon Waithe told the court.

On the first occasion, the trespasser had pulled out a knife and told the woman he would f*** her up if she went near him.

While she did not report the first incident, Sawh felt threatened the second time, so she contacted the police, the prosecutor added.   

Having heard Waithe outline the case, Sandiford pleaded for leniency.

“I have three children, the youngest is 23-months. A twin. A boy and a girl, he said.

“I start late ma’am. I come out of my shell late. You got to forgive me, you know how these things is,” he told acting Magistrate Sandra Rawlins adding, “My children really need me. Give me a little community service or something.”

Rawlins ordered Sandiford not to go onto Sawh’s property, and to stay away from trouble and the pears hanging over his neighbours property

“Yes ma’am. Thank you, ma’am,” was Sandiford exuberant reply as he walked out the door.

    If you really do have such young children, you better be mindful of the father they see. Mind what you do because your conduct will affect them

    He doesnt always look like that….his head grey from early and because he hasn’t shaved or had a trim recently that’s the result. …hard times change different ppl in different ways.
