A vendor whom the court heard was warned on several occasions to stay away from his ex-wife was today remanded to prison for damaging two of the woman’s windowpanes.

Thirty-two-year-old Mark Sampson of Werk-en-rust, Georgetown, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Sampson denied the charge which stated that on July 27, 2019, at Block ‘E’ South Sophia, he unlawfully and maliciously damaged two windowpanes belonging to his ex-wife.

Police Prosecutor Richard Harris objected to bail being granted to the defendant on the grounds that he was previously charged with a similar offence. The prosecutor also told the court that the defendant was arrested on several occasions and warned to stay away from his ex-wife but has not been doing so.

However, the man’s lawyer in a bail application for his client told the court that the victim is constantly visiting his client’s home for various reasons. The lawyer added that if bail is granted to his client, he will adhere to any conditions.

Prosecutor Harris, after listening to the lawyer’s bail application, asked that Sampson be remanded to prison on the grounds that he is in a habit of going to the victim premises.

The magistrate, after listening to both sides, remanded Sampson to prison until July 31.
