Dwayne YoungOn Tuesday, August 14th, 46-year-old Dwayne “Warrior” Young, a stevedore residing in Mahogany Heights, appeared in Magistrate's Court where he was sentenced to one year in jail. Young appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer accused of indecent assault.

According to a 22-year-old woman from Mahogany Heights, on February 20th, she had gone into her yard to feed her dogs when Young, her neighbor, made inappropriate sexual advances on her. She told the court that he kissed her on the mouth and cheek and touched her genitals against her will. The young woman's father also testified in court explaining that on that day, he had gone outside to check why the dogs were barking and he saw when Young had his daughter held by the waist.

In his defense, Young told the court that the entire story was made up. He said that he had done work on the bathroom for his neighbor and that her mother had made advances on him which he refused. Because of this, he said the woman made up the story to get back at him. The Magistrate did not buy the story and found him guilty of indecent assault and sentenced him to one year in prison.
