Man guilty of GBH after stabbing victim in neck

| 18/11/2010

(CNS): A man who was due to face a grand court jury trial Thursday morning for attempted murder has now pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of GBH and will be sentenced next month. Twenty-six year old O’Neil Robinson was charged with stabbing a woman in the neck at her home in George Town earlier this year. Following his guilty plea Justice Smith dismissed the jury and adjourned the case until 17 December in order to allow for a social enquiry report to be submitted before sentencing. O’Neil was remanded in custody to Northward by the judge.

According to police reports issued at the time Robinson was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder at the home of the woman who sustained serious neck injuries after she called the emergency services.

The judge was lenient on missing jurors today when twelve failed to show up for the selection. Justice Smith said he would give them a chance this time but issued a warning that if they do not return for the nextrequired appearance he would be issuing fines, which is prescribed in law as $500.

    GBH is a load of rubbish! If a person goes into a house and stabs someone in the neck then it is attempted murder plain and simple, there should be no compromise when it comes to a human life.
