Probation for assaulting and threatening woman


Tribune Court Reporter


A MAN was placed on probation for a year yesterday after admitting to assaulting and threatening a woman with a wrench.

Dustin Taylor, 39, faced Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain on charges of assault with a dangerous instrument and threats of harm.

On September 21 at Haven Road, Rock Crusher, Taylor assaulted Stephanie Riley with a wrench and threatened her with harm.

In court the accused pleaded guilty to both charges at the earliest opportunity.

Magistrate Swain placed Taylor on a year’s probation. If he breaches his probation, he risks a 30-day sentence at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
