Mentally ill man slapped with 4 charges

A mentally ill man on Friday appeared before Magistrate Annette Sighn in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to four charges.
He plead not guilty to all charges, which consisted of damage to property, abusive language, threatening language and larceny.
It is alleged that on January 2, at lot 88 Duncan Street, Campbellville, Steven Jagru unlawfully damaged one wooden door and a zinc and concrete fence valued 0,000; property of Farida Khan.
Also on April 5, he made use of threatening language to Khan. And on the same day at the same location, he also made use of abusive language to Farida Khan.
Jagru who is said to be the Virtual Complainant’s neighbor, upon observation seemed confused when he failed to respond to questions asked by the Magistrate, such as his home address and his profession.
This prompted the Magistrate to invite a relative of the man to give the information to the court on his behalf. It was then revealed to the court that he is of unsound mind.
According to the relative, Jagru is mentally ill, lives alone but is currently receiving treatment for his condition.
Magistrate Sighn then ordered a mental evaluation to be carried out on the defendant, to conclude whether or not he will be fit to stand trial.
He was remanded to prison and will appear in court on May 4.
