Toss case!

LAWYERS REPRESENTING the Rastafarian couple charged with breaching the Education Act argued yesterday that the charge against their clients was “bad” and should be dismissed, “never to be seen again”.

These were among the submissions made before Magistrate Douglas Frederick by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim, yesterday in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court. Pilgrim along with colleagues Douglas Trotman, Sian Lange and Ajamu Boardi appeared on behalf of the two parents charged with failing to register their children for school.

What was supposed to be the sentencing phase of the case, however, ended in an adjournment after the first appearance of the lawyers as they set out their submissions. They return to court on October 28.

The accused parents, Charles Lashley and Kim Jackman, were charged that “being the parents of the children of compulsory school age they did contravene to Section 41 of the Education Act”. (TKS)
