Chef dodges prison time in stabbing case

| 26/06/2017 | 21 Comments

(CNS): Delsey Kyshon Missick (24) was described in court as “over-reacting” after a traffic dispute in a nightclub car park last year, when he attacked two women with a kitchen knife. The local chef, who had a clean record until this incident, wounded the women after one of them slammed and banged on his vehicle outside Fete nightclub in an argument over allegations of bad driving. He was given a 12-month suspended sentence when he appeared in Grand Court Monday. 

The court heard how out of character the incident was for Missick, who has no previous convictions and entered a guilty plea. He is said to be a promising young chef who has already won awards for his culinary skills.

Justice Charles Quin said knives can kill as well as cause serious injury and should not be tolerated. Although Missick had stabbed and punched the women in the head during the violent altercation, the judge took into consideration the numerous mitigating factors and decided to suspend the year long jail term for two years and give the young chef a chance. He ordered Missick to pay the women’s medical bills and for him to undertake an anger management class as part of his supervised community sentence.

Warning Missick he would go to jail if he committed any offence during the next two years, Justice Quin urged him to concentrate on his job, stay out of trouble and away from the court. He warned him that except for making food, he should “never use a knife again”.

    I’m sorry, did I just read, “stabbed and punched these women in the head” with a kitchen knife in a nightclub parking lot, and there’s only community service and probation?

    Why did the woman follow him and then get out her car to argue and bang on his car? I am sure he told her one million times to get away and she did not. Once it escalated now she is the victim of over reaction. Act like a lady, you will be treated like one, act like a man, then assume responsibility.

      First of all “anonymous” I was not driving, so no I did not get out of my imaginary car and follow him. He nearly ran me over with his vehicle while I was leaving the nightclub and out of instinct I tapped on the hood of the car and walked away, which I was then attacked from behind.

    Only a local would get away with this. Now you can lose your temper, stab a female and get a slap on the wrist.

      Yes, Women…. In no way am I condoning what the chef did, but the article does speak about a woman slamming on his car, God knows what else was said or done. That actions of the woman alone was provoking. Too many times, women decide to hit men because they believe men should not hit a woman no matter what. My advice to those women is, do onto others as you would like done on to you. Assault is just that regardless of who commits it, woman or man.

    Women should learn from this too! Don’t put your hands on a man and expect that they will not react!

      You should be complaining as to why JOCC paved private roads and driveways in the Brac and has not had to answer for that!? The message has been sent long ago, CIG answers to no one.

    Not enough severe punishment for crimes in Cayman, that helps to generate crimes. Need long sentences and, make the Prison a punishment place, that when the criminals go there,they will never want go back.
