$10,000 fine for kicking complainant

A woman who admitted that she had taken money from a man before she found out that he couldn't read and write was given a stern warning in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court Thursday.

The woman was the complainant in a matter against Kymani Grant, who is accused of kicking her and damaging her gold chain.

Grant, who was found guilty by Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey, was fined $10,000 or six months.

"Your honour, me never know say he couldn't read and write, and me did stop talk to him. We never had sex or anything, but we stop communicating about a year. Him keep coming into mi yard, and I want him to stop because him kick mi in my face," Grant said.

After being quizzed, it was revealed that she had taken money and treats from Grant before.

"He has no right to kick you, but at the same time, what you have done is a form of extortion. That's your mistake, you shouldn't have taken his tings and you didn't want him," RM Pusey said.
