Bail extension for ward on assault charge
A ward accused of getting into a scuffle with another had her bail extended when she appeared before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court recently.
Charged with assault occasioning bodily harm is Sharleen Daley, who pleaded not guilty to the offence.
Allegations are that on February 27, the accused and the 17-year-old female complainant who is also ward of the state, reportedly got into an altercation which involved name-calling.
Things rapidly became physical, which led to Daley allegedly biting the complainant on her finger three times causing pain.
ANSWER TO CHARGES
The court heard that both Daley and the complainant, who did not appear in court, are involved in a case and cross case. The 17-year-old ward is to appear in the Children's Court to answer to charges.
Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey ordered Daley to return to court on March 18 pending an outstanding medical certificate.
