Pc to face trial on wife assault charges

A police officer accused of a string of offences, including two charges of assault on his wife, is to stand trial next year.

Sean Kelly, 40, will appear in Magistrates’ Court next February.

Mr Kelly, from Sandys, pleaded not guilty on August 4 last year to two counts of assault on Rebekah Kelly in an increased penalty zone.

The incidents are alleged to have happened on October 9, 2019 near Saltus in Pembroke and on December 29, 2019 in a Warwick playground.

Mr Kelly pleaded not guilty to using threatening words and causing $1,400 of damage to his wife’s car on October 9, 2019 in Pembroke.

He also denied the use of threatening words against Victor Fishington on December 29, 2019 in Warwick.

A police spokesman confirmed after Mr Kelly’s court appearance that he was a serving constable and had been suspended because of the allegations.

Magistrate Craig Attridge extended Mr Kelly’s $1,500 bail until the February 16 trial.
