A successful bail application was made in the St Catherine Parish Court on behalf of a man who allegedly severely bit a complainant on his private (penis) body; if we are to believe that the perpetrator made an inappropriate pass then one would have left the car they were in and return to the nearby usually crowded Rodney's arms and would raise an alarm causing a crowd to descend, instead of sitting in the car without consent; and we are to believe this!
He would have ran from the car shouting and calling attention to the matter and usually claiming 'battyman' which with just a shout of such cause persons to go into paranoid mode and once the accused is identified then the assault/mobbing begins.
The Portmore resident who is charged with wounding with intent and larceny of motorcar was granted $200,000 bail with a surety.
In applying for bail Attorney-at-Law Ernest Smith told the court his client was only defending his integrity during the incident.
And for the judge to buy into the dupe shows how our court magistrates are behind the cultural times in some respect to do with same gender liaisons.
He said to protect his dignity the 24-year-old man used a knife to stab the (a school's principal)complainant. The lawyer said the complainant jumped from the car and accused took control of the car and hit the complainant in the process.
Smith told the court his client reported the matter to the police the same night and nothing happened.
The complainant made a report three weeks later and his client was taken in custody.
Bail was subsequently granted on condition that he reports to the Caymanas police station,surrender hi travel document and reappear on July 19,2016.
Allegations before the court are that the day in question the accused injured the (principal) complainant as he attempted rob his motorcar.
A report was made to the police and the man subsequently arrested and charged by the police.
As the starring role was surmised in the form of the attorney representing the accused is antigay JLP affiliated politician Ernest aka Ernie Smith but it is a different Ernest Smith though it is not surprising that the GPD strategy was employed. Let us however remember this in 2009 when the other Ernie Smith insisted the buggery law should stay and he described homosexuals as nasty etc?:
