A teenager was today placed on $50,000 bail when he made his first court appearance before Magistrate Fabayo Azore.

The 17 – year – old male of Kitty, Georgetown pleaded guilty with an explanation to the offence which stated that on June 09 at Cross Street Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Denzil Lawrence, causing actual bodily harm.

The teen in his explanation told the court that he and the Virtual Complainant’s niece are currently in a relationship.

The 17 – year – old further explained that the Virtual Complainant issued several threats through his niece and accused him of doing nasty things to the young lady.

The teenager disclosed that he became annoyed and confronted the Virtual Complainant who was seen pulling something out of the waist of his pants.

The teen further added that he then armed himself with a piece of wood and sought to defend himself, by hitting the complainant about his body. Based on the teen’s explanation, the Magistrate entered a not guilty plea for him. The teenager will make his next court appearance on July 24. [Royan Abrams]
