Father and manager of dancehall artiste QQ, Joseph ‘GQ’ Dawkins, was yesterday sentenced to 30 days in prison on charges of assault occasioning bodily harm.
It is alleged that Dawkins physically assaulted his girlfriend at a service station.
When Dawkins appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court in Half-Way-Tree, St Andrew yesterday, he was ordered by Senior Resident Judith Pusey to apologise to the complainant.
However, Pusey was not satisfied with the apology and sentenced him to 30 days in jail.
It was reported that Dawkins and the complainant had an altercation at a Total service station along Constant Spring Road, when he reportedly held her by the throat, hit her in the face, head, stomach and bit her on the left arm.
