abusive man

Attorney requests special treatment for alleged abuser

The attorney representing the man charged with assaulting a woman in a bar in Arima wants his client to be kept away from the general prison population at the Golden Grove prison.

Attorney Fareed Ali wrote this morning to the Commissioner of Prisons with his request.

Ali says given the nature of the charges his client Ricardo Jerome is facing, it may be necessary to keep him away from other prisoners.

Ali believes the prison population may be vengeful.
