Minister Castro’s son gets off harm charge

Jafari Castro is no longer facing a charge of harm against Kevin Brown.  That was the magistrate’s conclusion today when Brown did not show up for the trial which was to start today. You may remember that back in August of last year, Minister Edmond Castro’s 21 year-old son, Jafari, was jointly charged with harm along with 21 year-old James Young Jr. and 18 year-old Gilbert Franklin Jr. They allegedly beat 21 year-old Kevin Brown into unconsciousness while they were at a function on Ambergris Caye.  The three accused showed up to court today but the complainant did not.  Senior Magistrate Ford then dismissed the case against the three young men.
