Complainant drops charges

A man is lucky today to have been set free after a complainant in the matter against him begged the judge not to go any further with the case on Friday, in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.

The accused, Adive King, was charged with larceny after a quantity of ground provisions and a scale belonging to the complainant went missing. King pleaded guilty with explanation.

He told the court that a friend gave him the items to sell downtown.

King said, "Your Honour, is a friend give me it to sell, some tomato, peas and dem ting deh and him come a town and see me and him get dem back."

The complainant told the court that he got back his scale and some of the seasoning.

The Senior Resident Magistrate then asked the complainant, "What you want me to do with him?"

"Give him a chance," the complainant said in a soft tone.

King was subsequently admonished and discharged as no evidence was offered.
