handcuffs[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 33 – year – old man, who confessed that he chopped his former stepdaughter, was yesterday fined $70,000, by Magistrate Annette Singh.

Fain Piggott admitted to the charge which stated that on December 22, at Craig Public Road, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Jewel Pisano.

Despite his confession to the crime, the man told the Court that he did not chop her; rather he threw a drinking glass at her which broke on her veranda and cut her.

Piggott claimed he threw the glass in retaliation after the woman threw the said glass in his back. He further told the Court that he was never in possession of the cutlass but it was the victim’s mother who was armed and chased him down the road.

The offence carries a maximum penalty of three years imprisonment. Piggot was also bonded to keep the peace.
