Businessman granted bail, warned to stay away from wife
Sheron Sukhdeo, the 28-year-old businessman who was accused of assaulting his wife, has been granted $85,000 bail.
Sukhdeo appeared before a Chaguanas First Magistrate’s Court in Tunapuna, before Magistrate Joanne O’Connor.
He was charged with maliciously wounding his wife at their home at Orchard Gardens, Chaguanas on February 10. He was also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm from another beating the following day.
A protection order is already in place preventing him from coming into contact with her.
Magistrate O’Connor again warned him to stay away from her and asked where he would be staying since he cannot return to their home.
His lawyer said he had not arranged for a place to stay, but assured the Magistrate that Sukhdeo would find somewhere else.
The wife was present in the court today for the hearing.
His matter was adjourned to March 15.
Crime Watch talk show host Ian Alleyne also appeared before the Magistrate today. Yesterday Alleyne was detained at Sukhdeo’s Orchard Gardens home for allegedly obstructing an officer on duty, resisting arrest and using annoying language. He was later charged for those three offences.
A video captured by both CNC3 and TV6 cameras showed Alleyne and Beyond the Tape host Inspector Roger Alexander in a fracas outside Sukhdeo’s home. Alexander subsequently arrested Alleyne.
Last night Alleyne was granted bail in the Chaguanas police station. At the court his bail was ratified.
Alleyne pleaded not guilty to all three charges and his case was adjourned until March 22.
