Angry father ordered to compensate daughter’s male friend

A 47-year-old man, who assaulted his daughter’s male friend on Christmas Day, had to pay out $2,050 in compensation when he appeared in a Bridgetown court yesterday.

Kevin Sean Snagg, who resides in England but was staying at 104, 3rd Avenue, Alleynes Land, Bush Hall, St Michael, pleaded guilty to assaulting Justin Quinlan, occasioning him actual bodily harm and damaging a shirt belonging to him.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick heard that Snagg arrived in the country earlier this month with his wife and three children to attend his mother’s 70th birthday celebrations.

However, he was involved in a heated argument with his 23-year-old daughter after she informed him that she was going out with Quinlan. The father had instructed the daughter, who lives in Austria, that she could not go on her planned date, but she left the house anyway.

Snagg followed her outside forbidding her to leave before approaching Quinlan, who was sitting in his car, and attempting to choke him. Amid the commotion, Quinlan’s car reversed, knocking over Snagg and his wife, who both sustained minor injuries.

When the parties appeared before Magistrate Frederick they came to an amicable solution following lengthy negotiations between Snagg’s lawyer Keith Simmons, QC, and Quinlan’s attorneys Marlon Gordon and Harry Husbands.

The IT manager agreed to compensate Quinlan $2,000 for his injuries and $50 for the damaged shirt. The money was paid forthwith, allowing Snagg to escape a one-month prison sentence.

No conviction was recorded against him.

      Then her boyfriend should have PAID FOR HER TRIP and RENTED an Apartment here for the two of them instead of ducking out on paying a return ticket.
      She is a big woman and should have known better than to let her boyfriend encroached on a FAMILY get together and then DISRESPECTING the whole family by leaving them and going out with the guy

      She was staying at her father here not at her
      self.Have to live by the rules of the house otherwise she should have rented an apartment or such like.
      Instead of assaulting the guy,he should have told the daughter that if she leaves she should take her belongings and don’t come back…let Justin Quinlan rent a place for her.
      Furthermore ,from what I read in another press all expenses for that trip was at the father and that was probably what got his head hot.

        You people gotta accept that she is a grown woman… if he want to get upset then get upset with his daughter.. and himself too. She is 23 let her pay for her own trip.

    Donkey of the Day! He need to keep his hands to himself and behave. He lives in the UK the daughter lives in Austria. The girl only doing what’s she accustomed doing. She is 23 years old. A woman. She has a right to make her own decision whether he agree or disagree. No point in arguing or giving constructive advice today’s young people see it as Airing yuh mouth until they get themselves in trouble then they come running to mum, dad and grand parents. If she make a mistake that’s her problem not yours. If she return safe thank God, if she end up with STD or end up with a pramful that’s her problem not yours. I assume dad don’t like the persona of the young man and is thinking of his daughter’s safety that’s what responsible parents do. Some young ladies have no ambition and love a hood rat regardless. She’s going out with him and going to enjoy your $2050.

    @ jrsmith, I agreed with you, but we do not know the circumstances surrounding this matter. I could be a possibility her father may not even support her in the pass, but just want to put on a show just because he has his immediate family present. If that young man was a violent person, the father could be probably be injured and that innocent young man would be in more trouble. That father seems to be a bully

    The man is not a bully .He is a no nonsense man.The daughter was CLEARLY DISRESPECTFUL to him and his mother.
    Some women like to put boyfriends ahead of family and when the boyfriend gets his full and leaves they would run back to them.
    Yes,the father was wrong to hit the boyfriend ..BUT I in hearing NONE a wunna say that daughter was disrespectful and embarrassed the family at this ONE OFF FAMILY GET TOGETHER…

    ‘Ole saying, “WHAT YOUR EYES DON’T SEE YOUR STOMACH CAN TAKE”.
    POPS, in Austria you don’t have a clue of who she is going out with while you living in England, even so, she is of age to make her OWN DECISIONS.

    @ Harry turnover, stop trying to school these schmucks. Since the ’80s we fathers have had to sit back and watch our daughters whom we have invested so much go to hell in a down basket. That’s why we have so many angry black women out there.

    Oh well Father, time will tell if this ” boyfriend” was worth causing a rift in the family! You paid the fine, go back to England and continue your life. Austria could be a tough place at times, hope she does not come calling when she needs money.

    He is a fool. If that young man was a bad boy he would be wasted. The girl is 23 not 3 , why is he acting that way. Does he know who she speaks to or go out with in Austria ? He is a big bully. Clearly if he and his daughter were on good terms she would have not defied him. Probably they went to school and were catching up. Snagg need to behave himself.

    He would have impregnated her mother when hewas between 22 to 24. Let the woman lone. If the car had run back and kill somebody when he was trying to choke the man. Manslaughter charge in he tail.
