Fe­male ac­cused gets pro­ba­tion

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION - BYMIKA REKAI

A 15-year-old fe­male from the Bay Roberts area was sen­tenced to one year of pro­ba­tion at pro­vin­cial court in Har­bour Grace June 6 af­ter she en­tered guilty pleas on two counts of as­sault and one count of as­sault with a weapon.

The charges stem from two sep­a­rate in­ci­dents ear­lier this year.

In the first, po­lice re­ceived a call from the fe­male’s mother, claim­ing the daugh­ter was at­tempt­ing to stab her younger brother.

When po­lice ar­rived, they found the house in dis­ar­ray. Many things were bro­ken and a door had been torn in half.

The young boy was found in the wash­room, where he had been hid­ing from his sis­ter. Po­lice noted that the wash­room door had been stabbed mul­ti­ple times.

The stu­dent was taken po­lice cus­tody and charged.

A few weeks later, she was charged with two more counts of as­sault af­ter she and a friend ini­ti­ated a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion with two girls at their school.

Both in­ci­dents were given a to­tal of one year of pro­ba­tion, to run con­sec­u­tive­lyl. The stu­dent was also or­dered to seek coun­selling by the court.
