Home News Bus conductor jailed for stabbing teen
Georgetown Magistrate Annette Singh on Friday jailed a Route 40 minibus conductor for four months after he was found guilty of wounding a 17-year-old student back in 2017.
The magistrate found that sufficient evidence was presented to convict 21-year-old Miguel Isaac of the charge, which detailed that on November 9, 2017 at Stabroek Market, Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded, Odaffi Taylor, causing him grievous bodily harm.
The prosecution’s case was that on November 9, 2017, the teen was at the Route 40 (Kitty/Campbellville) bus park awaiting transportation when he was not allowed to enter the minibus of which the defendant was the conductor. This led to an argument, during which the Garnett Street, Kitty, Georgetown conductor, who was armed with a pair of scissors, dealt the teen one stab to his neck.
