Man who al­legedly bit prin­ci­pal’s pe­nis granted bail

The Star (St. Lucia) - - REGIONAL - - Ja­maica Gleaner

The man who al­legedly bit a school prin­ci­pal on his pe­nis in Port­more, St Cather­ine, Ja­maica has been granted bail in the amount of $200,000.

The Port­more res­i­dent is charged with wound­ing with in­tent and lar­ceny of a mo­tor­car.

The St Cather­ine Par­ish Court heard that the ac­cused in­jured the school prin­ci­pal as he at­tempted to rob the ed­u­ca­tor of his mo­tor­car.

A re­port was made to the po­lice and the man was sub­se­quently ar­rested and charged by the po­lice.

In ap­ply­ing for bail, the man’s at­tor­ney, Ernest Smith, told the court that his client was only “de­fend­ing his in­tegrity” when the in­ci­dent oc­curred. Ac­cord­ing to Smith, the school prin­ci­pal was a men­tor to his client and took the ac­cused for drinks.

Smith said in­stead of driv­ing home his client af­ter­wards, the prin­ci­pal forced him­self onto the ac­cused. To pro­tect his dig­nity, Smith said, the 24-year-old man also used a knife to stab the com­plainant.

He said it was only af­ter the prin­ci­pal jumped from the car that the ac­cused took con­trol of the ve­hi­cle and in the process the ed­u­ca­tor was hit.
