Case against Rasta couple thrown out

Social Share


That was the outcome in the court matter involving the Rastafarian couple whose case dominated the media for the last couple months.

Charles Lashley and Kim Jackman were jointly charged with failing to register their two children for school to receive full time education.

After prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson sought to amend the case in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court this morning, lawyers for the accused objected.

Lead attorney Andrew Pilgrim argued the amendment would be prejudicial and Magistrate Douglas Frederick agreed before discontinuing the case.

Lashley and Jackman are still involved in a custody battle with the Child Care Board in the High Court. That matter will come up again on December 13. (TKS)
