A woman who used a machete to beat a child was slapped with a $30,000 fine or six months’ imprisonment in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate‘s Court last Friday.

Sharma Stewart pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm and offered the court an explanation.

The court was told that Stewart used a machete to beat the youngster causing cuts all over his body.

Stewart confessed to using the machete to hit the child on his buttocks but denied that she hit him all over.
