Forty – two – year old Anthony Francesco of 138 Laing Avenue Georgetown pleaded not guilty to both charges when they were read to him. The court heard that on August 27 at Laing Avenue he assaulted his eight month old daughter Anna Princess.
On the same day, the accused allegedly threatened to kill his 19 – year – old stepson, Travis Williams. Attorney – at – law Paul Fung-A-Fat
represented the accused and told the court that Williams is in the habit of stealing from Francesco and that on the day of the incident, his client held Williams by his neck.
The lawyer however told the court that his client never hit his daughter. Anthony Francesco requested to speak with the Magistrate and
related that whenever his stepson is at the house, he would normally create problems. Based on the information presented in court the
Magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of $10,000 for the assault charge and $10,000 for the threatening language charge.
Francesco will reappear in court on September 06. [Royan Abrams]
