Man accused of attacking woman and children with cutlass slapped with another charge

6

Thirty-one-year-old Jared Robinson who was charged with attempted murder and malicious damage in April this year, was today issued an additional charge in the All Saints Magistrate’s Court.

On April 11, he allegedly attacked a 14-year-old, along with an eight-year-old girl and her mother, Tanisha Gregory.

During what was supposed to be the committal proceedings  before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards today, the prosecution informed the Court that the Director of Public Prosecutions instructed them to add a new charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The charge was added, and the matter was adjourned for committal on January 27.

If the Magistrate is satisfied that the prosecution has enough evidence against the Swetes man, the matter will be sent up to the High Court for trial.

  1. Who is raising up these killers and those who attempt it??? To those found guilty, hanging by the neck until dead is the only deterrent. We already have too many of them in 1735. In fact, if we’d execute all them in 1735 found guilty of murder, we’d have lots of room in that place.

  2. ADDITIONAL CHARGE LAUGHABLE

    The Headline may have been ‘…Wounding With Intent.’

    What shall be known is this, ‘…The Greater includes the Lesser.’

    For instance, when a person is charged with the ‘…Greater Charge of Murder,’ one is then not additionally charged with ‘…Manslaughter.’

    Conversely, when a person is charged with ‘…Attempted Murder,’ particularly where a weapon was used, in that charge is the lesser offence is that of ‘…Wounding With Intent to do Actual Bodily Harm.’

    Thus, there was no need to charge this accused with ‘…Wounding With Intent.’

    The ‘DPP’ could easily have exercised a constitutional power ‘Section 88’ [CO: 1981].

    If the evidence suggests the ‘…Lesser Charge,’ then the ‘DPP’ could so indict.

    There shall have been no delay in the ‘…Committal Proceedings,’ then to blame any delay on the Judiciary.
