‘It was in self defence,’ Boyce claims

A 57-year-old man was granted $3,000 bail today after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on an assault charge.

Hal Fernando Boyce, of Blanch Gap, Westbury New Road, St Michael, pleaded not guilty to assaulting Adrian Fields on November 21, occasioning him actual bodily harm.

“It was in self defence,” Boyce told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this morning.

With no objection raised to his bail, Boyce was released after his surety was accepted.

He returns to court on March 3.
