A schoolboy who injured his teacher at the Maud McLeod High School in Darliston, Westmoreland, in June 2009, a few weeks before the close of the school year, was sentenced to nine months imprisonment at hard labour on Tuesday.

Chevaughn Fearon, 18, of Lambs River, Westmoreland, pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding before Resident Magistrate Sheron Barnes on October 27. A Social Enquiry Report was requested before his sentence was handed down in the Whithorn Resident Magistrate's Court, Westmoreland.

Fearon used a knife to attack electrical technology teacher Conrad Clarke, when the two had an altercation at the school. Clarke was on his way to the principal's office to report that Fearon had thrown stones at him in his class when he was attacked. Clarke sustained injuries to his left hand, neck, abdomen, lungs, liver and spleen. He was hospitalised for a week. Fearon was sitting examinations and was a few weeks away from graduating.

Attorney-at-law Hervin Smart, who represented the schoolboy, made an impassioned plea in mitigation, saying Fearon had no pervious record of aberrant behaviour and was a bright youngster who passed two subjects in major exams and was successful for entry into the HEART programme.

Fearon was 18 years old at the time of the incident and was sentenced by the court to nine months imprisonment at hard labour.
