Man Remanded, Charged With Threatening

January 16, 2013

[Updated] In Magistrates Court this morning [Jan 16], Detroy Smith, 27, was charged with sending a threatening message to a female, and also charged with making a threatening gesture by allegedly sending that person a picture of a hand holding a gun.

Smith was not required to enter a plea to the first charge, but did plead not guilty to the second charge. However, the Prosecutor said that both charges will be sent and heard together in the Supreme Court.

The alleged offences were said to have been directed at his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child. The matter was adjourned to later this month, and after a short bail hearing, Smith was remanded into custody until that date.

Update May 2013: Mr Smith was subsequently convicted of these charges and was sentenced to six months in prison.

    Quite a lot of recent stories of men allegedly abusing(sexually&physically) and threatening women and children lately. The justice system needs to send a serious message and jail these punks, if guilty, for a very long time. Takes a real coward to threaten/abuse a female.

    • I'm Just Sayin' says:

    • (0.0) says:

      Maybe it would be better if they named him something like “Apple” or “Sky” or “Lazer” like some “other” people in this world do?! What the hell does a stupid name have to do with anything?

    • ABM says:

      Tom dick and harry???? Since when are those even considered normal names??

    • Pastor Syl Hayward says:

      @ MadeUpNames: Perhaps you don’t realize your comment was racist.
      Many non-British people decided a while back that they no longer wanted to use names associated with people who had oppressed them in slavery and for more than a century thereafter. They looked for names that reflected their culture and heritage – some from Africa and some from their own imaginations. Just because they are not your traditional names doesn’t make them any less valid, nor does it immediately indicate that they are criminals, which it appears you are implying

  9. Banana Leaf says:

    It appears he didn’t learn respect or how to curb his temper since subsequently spat on an umpire. Hope his offspring have better role models.
