In wife’s defence

Griffith admits to slapping down barman

A 44-year-old man, who slapped a barman twice for allegedly making sexual advances to his wife, will know his fate next Friday.

Alphonsa Claudius Philip Griffith, of Pearl View, Kingsland Terrace, Christ Church, admitted to unlawfully assaulting Greg Hackett on October 19, occasioning him actual bodily harm.

Hackett, who is employed at a Dover, Christ Church establishment, was reportedly sitting on a bench speaking to someone when Griffith walked up and demanded an apology from him for making sexual advances to his wife.

Hackett refused which resulted in Griffith slapping him.

The self employed man persisted with his demands and with the apology still not forthcoming, he slapped Hackett a second time. Police were called in and Griffith was arrested.

“He was up in her face making sexual advances,” the husband insisted.

However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick said today he was not prepared to make a ruling in the matter until he heard Hackett’s side of the story.

Griffith, whose guilty plea was in breach of a yearlong bond imposed on him by another magistrate on a traffic charge, was therefore remanded to prison until October 27 after he was unable to pay the required 1,500 forthwith fine.

      Never been charged? No matter how “noble” his intentions were, he assaulted another person. Of course he should be charged.

    I would like to hear what Hackett as well as the wife have to say. He should not have slapped the man. On the other hand, if true, the man should not be up in the woman’S face. Is the woman known to the man?

    One week at the bed and breakfast in St.Philip for on the taxpayers’ shilling for teaching the young turk a lesson in propriety? Meanwhile the same is probably sleeping with the naive wife !! Sounds like a good Shakespearean tale.

    Now you all see why this political sexual harassment bill needs to be carefully examined. What if it was the woman who was allegedly assaulted had slapped the man twice, would she be charge for occasioning him actual bodily harm.
    What if the woman was defenseless at the time and the man came to her defense?
    Men have to be very careful when they are in the company of women, especially when they know the woman. When they are caught making the plans, the woman jump ship and left the man at sea. “Trouble for the man”.

    Twist the tale a bit. Let’s suppose that after the 2nd slap the guy had drawn a pistol and blew his brains out. What would the public response be?
