Judge Dismisses Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest Charges Against Skeng


In a recent legal case, Skeng has had charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest dismissed by a judge. Attorney-at-law Christopher Townsend successfully argued for the case to be dismissed on the grounds of a lack of proper disclosure and an abuse of process.

The case was mentioned in the case management court in the afternoon, and Townsend contended that the matter had been left without proper disclosure for too long, which was, in itself, an abuse of process. Justice Leighton Morris agreed with Townsend's arguments and dismissed the matter.

Earlier in the day, there was an administrative mix-up, which caused Skeng's case to be listed in the wrong court. Instead of being heard in the case management court, it was listed in the Corporate Area Criminal court. As a result, when Skeng did not appear, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

The dismissal of the charges is a significant victory for Skeng, who had been facing serious allegations. Disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges can carry significant penalties, including fines, community service, and even imprisonment. However, due to the successful argument made by Townsend, the case has now been dismissed, and Skeng has been cleared of any wrongdoing
