EON Jacobs

EON Jacobs, a 29-year-old police constable, was yesterday, May 13, 2019, placed on self-bail by Chief Magistrate Ann Mc Lennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, after he allegedly assaulted his wife and also used obscene language.

Jacobs, who resides at Lot 123 Middle Road, East La Penitence, pleaded not guilty to the charge which read that, on February 23, 2019, at Vlissengen Road, Georgetown, he assaulted Amanda Morris Jacobs. He also denied that, on the same day, at the said location, he used a series of obscene language towards Jacobs.

According to reports, on the day in question, the couple had an argument which resulted in him (Eon Jacobs) taking a wood, with which he dealt his wife several lashes after she attempted to walk away.

Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield did not object to bail. The Magistrate placed Jacobs on self-bail and he will make his next appearance in court on May 20, 2019.
