Man gets seven years for wounding at Litchfield

Brian Seymour who was last week found not guilty of attempted murder but guilty of felonious wounding committed on Leon Charles at Litchfield Village, West Coast Berbice, on February 10, 2016, was yesterday sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall in summing up the matter last week at the High Court in Berbice, pointed out that Seymour, 34, also known as ‘Hundred’, in his oral statement to investigators claimed that Charles pulled out a pair of scissors and then he picked up a piece of wood and hit Charles, while in his written statement he said he picked up the piece of wood and hit Charles and it was then that Charles attempted to draw the scissors.
