Four men who confessed to torturing a boy, including scalding his hands at the Nature Fun Ranch last month, got a scolding yesterday ahead of their sentencing.

Akeil Adrian Harding, 22, of Kendall Hill, Christ Church; Jamali Jaheem Farrell, 19, of Skeetes Road, Bank Hall, St Michael; Anderson Patrick Gill, 26, of Free Hill, Black Rock, St Michael; and Dario Rasheed Greenidge, 26, of 1st Avenue Maxwell, Christ Church, all pleaded guilty to assaulting the 14-year-old schoolboy, occasioning him actual bodily harm, on February 8.

Prosecutor Constable Sayleen Hinds had no objection to bail in the District “D” Magistrates’ Court, stating the boy was no longer enrolled in the programme so there was no reason for interaction.

 Magistrate Wanda Blair ordered presentencing reports, placed each man on $4 000 bail and instructed them to return to court on May 27 for sentencing.

“The complainant went to the ranch for help. What transpired was nothing short of torture by young men who should know better,” she told the four. (RA)
