    • My point exactly!! What the hell!! This young woman could have been killed by this animal and he was granted bail. Attempted murder!!! Trust me he would have to go in hiding!!!

    • Agree. The in lies the first problem. $3500.00 for bail on such an offence. That less than if you get a guy with weed. Isn’t there more charges that could have been brought up against him. Like stocking, using a deadly weapon with the intent to harm, attempted murder (she could have died), fleeing the scene of a crime and yes causing grievous bodily harm. I am not lawyer but am just saying these ridiculous bail about and subsequent penalty are some of the reason these criminals are so emboldened. He will be in jail for about 3 to 5 years but she will have to live with the scar and trauma for the rest of her life.

  1. Greivious harm “$3500.00 ” Only if provoked in self defense! & A woman! Former beauty pageant! “Well the ” Law” did not take sides “I can see a note of sympathy! Anyway h9pe get abides by the generous stipulations.

  2. This is ridiculous we have to start questioning who are these judges that are passing these sentences? we need a comission to analize all these judgements,and we have to have a public hearing on all these issues, here you have a lady that has been chopped for life,her life will never be normal again,and the culprit gets away with a slap on the wrist.He should be in jail for at least 30 years,and he should be made to pay the lady for all the bodily damages he caused to her body.If he cant pay,he stays in jail

  3. Wow… and I thought it was 🇦🇬 alone these unexplainable things happened in court. Attempted murder should have been the charge.. 😡😡

  4. Bring back capital punishment. If I was in town I would have personally get hold of his personal…tie him to the freedom emblem on the square, and let the women of the town deal with him.

  5. Just 3,500for almost taking her life?. Non sense, prison is full of innocent people. Free them and replace them by these animals. Nonsense. The judges needs to have a review on some cases. Which is buried because of poor families, no name, Ralph nom chien. In justice. This need to be stopped in st. Lucia. Let the animals go cut some cuts down there where the sun never shines. Some hungry inmates are waiting for fresh meat. Then he would know the value of letting a woman respect her private part BETTISE

  6. The courts are just a big joke in St Lucia.This is going the wrong way,and the people are going to start taking things into their hands,and who are we going to put the blame unto? the courts of course.
