In Magistrates Court yesterday [Aug 6] 16-year-old Leshun Wolffe was granted $2,000 bail, given a curfew and was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device [EMD].
Court proceedings were adjourned for a short while so that with the assistance of Duty Counsel, his mother could be allowed to come to Court.
The 16-year-old was dealt with on two counts. The first count was indictable only and must be dealt with in Supreme Court. This was a charge that in August 2012, with intent to do grievous bodily harm, he had unlawfully wounded another man. No plea was required.
The second charge was that in January 2012, Wolffe had stolen $365 from another person and from the changing rooms at the Seaview gym on North Shore Road in Pembroke. Wollfe pleaded guilty to this offence.
The Court was told that this theft involved a second named person and was captured on CCTV. Both were teenagers, both were identified, and the bulk of the money was recovered from a trash can shortly after the theft had been reported to police.
Police searched Wolffe’s clothing and found money stuffed inside the lining of the jacket that had been seen on CCTV. Taken to Hamilton Police Station, Wolffe admitted the theft and was given police bail to appear in Court.
For this second offence, Wollfe and his alleged accomplice had been ordered to appear in Court for trial on 19th January; but neither had shown. Magistrate Tyrone Chin ordered a Social Inquiry Report and required Wollfe to re-appear for sentencing, on this offence in September 2012.
The Magistrate released him on $2,000 bail with one like surety, ordered a curfew, and required Wolffe to wear an EMD.
