Sherlon Caseman was granted $10,000 bail after he pleaded guilty to breaking a protection order and assault by beating a female relative, on April 11.
Caseman, of Breezy Heights, Mt Hope, appeared before magistrate Nalini Singh at the Tunapuna Magistrates virtual court on Tuesday. After pleading guilty, he was ordered to have no communication with the victim and to find another place to stay until the next court hearing.
A police report said Caseman, a 36-year-old clerical officer, breached the three-year protection order made against him in September 2019, when he chocked and flung the victim after a small argument, in April.
The victim was making dinner in the kitchen when Caseman came next to her and asked her to move. She hesitated and a small argument followed. Caseman became annoyed and held onto her neck with his right hand and flung her into the kitchen counter.
The order prohibits Caseman from interacting with the victim in ways that can lead to domestic violence or threatening to engage in acts that will amount to domestic violence.
On July 30, the victim made a report to the police and the Gender-Based Violence Unit, Northern Division at the Maloney Police Station investigated.
After the investigation, Caseman was arrested and charged on Monday. The matter was adjourned to September 15.
