Court Orders Pair To Pay $8,000 Restitution

June 13, 2012

Kori Hinds 27, and Lashunde Edwards 19, were both granted a Conditional Discharge but were ordered to make restitution of almost $8,000 to the complainant after they both pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawfully damaging a car.

The pair appeared in Magistrates Court this morning [June 13], with the Court hearing the offence took place around 3:00am on 23rd May outside of Club Minaj in St George’s.

The Crown Prosecutor told Magistrate Tokunbo that the car owner had seen Ms Edwards outside the Club and had recognized her as his ex-girlfriend. At the time, Ms Edwards was in the company of Mr Hinds.

Mr Hinds asked the complainant if he could give Ms Edwards a ride home, and the complainant refused saying that “she was not getting into his car.”

The evidence continued that shortly after, and following further verbal exchanges, Ms Edwards, Mr Hinds, and others attacked the complainant’s car by kicking it and pummeling it with their hands. The evidence was that the car doors, bonnet, and trunk were damaged and the estimate for repairs was almost $8,000.

Mr Hinds apologized to the Court and through lawyer Aldwyn Savoury, offered restitution; with the lawyer pointing out that Mr Hinds was gainfully employed. Ms Edwards said that at this time she was not “in a position to offer restitution” as had Mr Hinds.

Magistrate Tokunbo then granted a Conditional Discharge, for twelve months; and ordered the pair should make restitution with each paying half of the $7,985 claimed. The Magistrate also ordered that this should be paid in through the Court.

    Good for them! Got the nerve to say she has no money to pay for the damage “She” inflicted to the car. WELL NEITHER DOES THE OWNER!! Pay up and shut up!

    • lol says:

      This is some bs why would he give her a lift to another mans yard if thats his ex i woulda said no too.

      • Come Correct says:

        I think I would have avoided the whole taking her to court situation and just given her a lift…over the hood of my already f@cked up car on her walk home…actually na, I can see how holding her up side down and shaking all the pennies out could be more entertaining, while laughing. My suggestion, park your car around cameras from now on buddy she might come back for the windshields. Gotta watch these east enders, I hear the air is thinner up that way.
