Lynette Alexis Henry has been attending the
San Fernando Magistrates Court for over 18
months to say why her son, whose bail she stood,
did not attend his court date.
However, for Henry, 62, the trips have become
exceedingly tiresome as she is wheelchair-bound
and has to be carried up to the courtroom by her
two sons on each occasion.
Yesterday, when the matter was called before
Deputy Chief Magistrate Mark Wellington in the
San Fernando First Magistrates' Court, Henry was
not able to come before Wellington.
Only one of her sons, Newton Francis, came to
court with her and was unable to lift her by him-
When Henry and her son arrived at the court-
house around 8.30 am yesterday, it was raining and
thry both were soaked before security guards at
the court helped Francis bring the wheelchair into
The matter was called at around 11 am, leaving
Henry to dry off in her wheelchair.
Speaking to members of the media outside the
courthouse, Henry said the whole thing had dis-
"It is really, really bad. There is no wheelchair
access and I just have to sit here and wait," she
Francis, whose bail she took, said the matter has
been ongoing for months with no end in sight. He
was charged with rape in 2011 and his matter is
"Every time we come, they adjourned the matter.
I had broken my knee and could not come for my
court date but the magistrate did not want to hear
that," he said.
Henry, who recently travelled to Canada for sur-
gery, said doctors could not find a cause for her
"They don't know what is wrong with me but
I can only walk about a foot or two with someone
holding me up."
In the past, magistrates have left their benches
to hear the cases of prisoners in the holding bay
who could not walk and there is no wheelchair
Teen, 17, held for
and her son, 13
A 17-year-old teenager remained in police
custody last night for the chopping attack of
a woman and her 13-year-old son at their
Las Lomas #3 home on Sunday.
Claudia Barcoo Campo, 41, and her son,
Nathan, are warded at the Eric Williams Medical
Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.
T&T Guardian was told Nathan was in a
critical condition and may have suffered severe
brain damage. He was severely chopped to the
head, shoulder, arms and body.
His mother had to undergo facial repositioning
surgery yesterday. She was chopped multiple
times about the body and head.
Her three-year-old son, who was asleep in
the house at the time of the incident, was
unharmed in the cutlass attack. He is said to
be in the care of a relative.
According to investigating officers at about
6.30 pm the suspect came to Campo's house,
where she operates a plant business, asking for
plants he was interested in purchasing.
She reportedly took the potential customer
to the area where she had rose plants where
she was then attacked. Police said as she turned
her back the attacker whipped out a cutlass
and chopped her twice to the head.
He then entered the house and attempted
to get the keys to the family's car but was con-
fronted by Nathan.
During a struggle Nathan was chopped and
left for dead.
The suspect escaped in the family's Nissan
Tiida vehicle, police said.
Cpl Roach is investigating.
