magistrate orders man to keep his hands off his child’s mother

A 29-year-old man was Monday ordered to keep his hands to himself after he admitted to assaulting the mother of his child on Sunday, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

Shayne Renaldo Harvey, of 1st Avenue Chapman Lane, St Michael, was also ordered to vacate Sheena Taylor’s home by
6 p.m. Monday after she informed Magistrate Douglas Frederick that the relationship was over.

In outlining the facts of the case, the prosecutor, Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim, revealed that an argument broke out at Taylor’s home around 5 a.m. after Harvey arrived and that the accused man, who is the father of the woman’s three-week-old daughter, inflicted “two blows” to her face.

However, while admitting to hitting the mother of his child, Harvey said, “It was reflex. I am sorry. I was trying to get the phone from she . . . and I give a quick one hand punch and left home.

“It was one lash,” he insisted, while stressing that “I ain’t beat she.”

However, Frederick immediately told him that he must keep his hands to himself.

Taylor meanwhile told the magistrate that she was through with the relationship because “I don’t want to go through this again”.

The magistrate then ordered that Harvey compensate Taylor $100 for her injuries by tomorrow.

He also been placed him on a bond to keep the peace and be on his best behaviour for the next six months. If he breaches the order, he will have to pay the court $2,000 forthwith or spend three months in jail.

    Blasted idiot, I don’t think the punishment was harsh enough for him not to hit another woman again. He should be relaxing in Dodds for Christmas!

    What sort of idiot magistrate gives a cowardly thug like this just $100 for hitting a woman. This is no deterrent for him or any other so called men, the magistrate is a disgrace

    A man stealing food and gone to jail. Donna Melissa Bynoe Do you check to see how much Times he was warned. Sometimes some of these people are on bonds and they break the bond. What do expect the magistrate to do set them free to make people lives miserable.

    The law as usual; an ass. Steupse. That is one of the reasons persons end up taking the law into their own hands.
