Kwame McCoy is now officially a convict
Office of the President (OP) Press Officer Kwame McCoy was this morning found guilty of committing an assault for gun-butting a man after a row over elections campaign posters last year.
McCoy was found guilty of assaulting and using threatening language on Clifton Stewart on October 25, 2011, for which he was fined a total of $70,000. Failing to pay the fine, McCoy would have to serve four weeks in jail in total.
“The prosecution has proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt and the court as a result finds the defendant guilty as charged,” Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry announced this morning at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, where McCoy was present.
McCoy was fined $50,000 with an alternative of two weeks imprisonment for the assault, and $20,000 with an alternative of two weeks imprisonment for the use of threatening language.
