The Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, today charged Jamaica Defence Force Private, Ravaughn Scott, after he allegedly shot and wounded a teenager in April this year.

Private Scott appeared before the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court today.

He’s charged with wounding with intent, in contravention of Section 20 of the Offences Against the Person Act.

Allegations are that in April this year, Private Scott shot the teenager, during a joint Police-military operation in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.

Scott was offered bail in the sum of 2-hundred and 50-thousand dollars.

As part of his bail conditions he’s been ordered to surrender his travel documents.

A stop order has been placed on him at all ports and he has been ordered to report to the Papine Police once weekly between 6am and 9pm.

Private Scott is scheduled to return to court in March, next year.
