Montego Bay, Jamaica (Mckoy’s News) – Phone Thief Walks Free: Montego Bay resident Tevaughn Headley, who was charged for allegedly stealing a woman’s cell phone and charger from her dwelling house, walked out of the St. James Parish Court a free man today.
The prosecution offered no further evidence on the basis that the complainant had indicated that she had no further interest in pursuing the matter.
Headley, who was represented by attorney-at-law Stacey-Ann Williams, was facing a charge of larceny from the dwelling.
The prosecution is alleging that on October 21, 2016, Headley entered into the complainant’s dwelling house and took her cell phone and charger without her knowledge.
Headley, who has been in custody for some time, was also seeing the psychiatrist.
In court today, presiding judge Natalie Hart-Hines expressed some concerns as to whether or not Headley will be properly monitored.
In addressing Headley’s grandfather, who was present in court, the judge said, “I want to know if his father has time for him to ensure that he is behaving himself and to assist him with a job so that he will stay out of trouble.”
The grandfather, however, assured the judge that Headley will be monitored and the prosecution subsequently offered no further evidence.
