A mother will have to stand the cost in a court matter against her son, whom she reportedly urged to retaliate an defend himself after she insisted that 'drawers' water was thrown on him.
Shaquiel Delliser pleaded guilty yesterday in the Kingston and St. Andrew parish court to assault charges after he threw a stone at a woman who threw water on him.
Reports were that the accused was at the complainant's gate gambling and using expletives.
She told the court: "Mi come out and ask dem fi excuse and then me start wet up the place. Some of the water catch him and me wipe it off and tell him sorry. His mother who saw what was happening come out and say, 'ya idiot mek gyal throw drawers water on yuh'."
What transpired next caught the complainant by surprise.
"After mi done, mi go back on mi veranda and him come deh a di grille and throw the stone and buss mi head. Mi get four stitches and do xray and dem thing deh," the complainant said.
Parish judge Vaughn Smith points finger at the mother who caused the situation to venture further than it was suppose to.
"After the woman apologise and wiped his foot where the water caught him, is you boost him up", the judge said.
Delliser's mother was asked to fork out $30,000 immediately. However, she begged the court for time to pay the money. She is to return to court on February 16 with $31,000. Delliser will also be sentenced on that day. His bail was extended until then.
