End of case
RASTAFARIAN PARENTS Charles Lashley and Kim Jackman are rejoicing today.
They walked free from the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday after charges of failing to register their two children for full-time schooling were dismissed.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick took the decision in the much-publicised case against the Pine Basin, St Michael couple five weeks after finding them guilty.
“Praises be to Jah Rastafari, Jah Holy Faith, for Jah’s continuous guidance in overseeing and protecting his children,” were Lashley’s words of relief outside the courtroom after the case.
It was just after 3 p.m. when Frederick handed down his decision in the courtroom, which included president of the African Heritage Foundation Paul Rock and his wife, along with the defence team, led by Andrew Pilgrim QC and including Sian Lange, Douglas Trotman and Ajamu Boardi.
