Facebook posts lead to beating
Savion Hall, a 20-year-old man was charged in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday for unlawfully wounding his 16-year-old girlfriend.
It is alleged that on September 1, the complainant was on her way to a shop when Hall crept up behind her and slapped her several times with a piece of stick all over her body.
Hall pleaded guilty to the charges.
He told the presiding judge, Chester Crooks, that he hit the girl because she posted malicious things about him on Facebook.
He also said he has been dating the girl for the last two years.
He has been placed on probation for a year.
