Principal assault case starts April
Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

The assault case against principal of Jonathan Grant High School, Dr Oneil Ankle, will be tried on April 15 next year.

When the matter was mentioned in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, the date was set.

It was revealed that a statement that was missing was now on file.

The court also issued a subpoena for investigating officer Constable Paul Banbury.

Ankle's appearance in court arose from an incident in September last year.

A videographer from a media house went to tape students who were locked out for wearing short uniforms. The principal got irate and allegedly shoved the cameraman and damaged his camera lens in the process.

A report was made and the complainant sought medical attention.

Ankle was subsequently summoned to answer to the charges of malicious destruction of property and assault occasioning bodily harm.

The accused is represented by attorney-at-Law Jacqueline Samuels-Brown, while attorney-at-Law Lancelot Clarke Jr is watching proceedings on the complainant's behalf.
