A taxi driver was on Friday released on $30,000 bail when he stood before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts after he was slapped with three counts of assault on his elderly mother.
Dwayne Lynch, 41, of Stevedore Housing Scheme, Georgetown denied all three of the charges after they were read to him.
The charge stated that on August 20, 2018, while at Stevedore Housing Scheme, Lynch used abusive language towards his mother Coreen Hilliman, thereby breaching the peace of this occasion.
It was also alleged that on the same day, at the same location, the father of two unlawfully and maliciously damaged one wardrobe glass valued $17,000 property of Hilliman.
Another charge also stated that he assaulted the woman on that same day.
Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh made no objection to bail being granted but asked that the mother and son be placed on a bond to keep the peace until completion of the matter.
Singh further informed the court that this was not the first time since the woman had made allegations against Lynch.
However, the man was released on $10,000 bail for each of the charges and is expected to return to court on August 27, 2018.
