At Top, AssemblyMan Hilton Sandy,
At Bottom his Wife Candice Chang-Sandy
Infirmed Assemblyman, Hilton Sandy, appeared before the Scarborough magistrate Court yesterday on a Charge of domestic violence brought against him by his wife, Candice Chang-Sandy.

Sandy, age 69, is the non functioning representative for Roxborough/Delaford, having suffered a stroke in September 2013.

He was represented by attorney Joy Phillips while his wife Candice Chang-Sandy, age 29, was represented by attorney Deborah Moore-Miggins.

Members of the media and the public were instructed to clear the court when the matter was called, and it was advised that parties should settle the matter out of court.

Attorneys in the case were tight- lipped on the details of the matter, however, deliberations to strike a deal was said to have taken place.

Attorneys later visited the home of the Sandy's in Carnbee to allot restrictions to them, with respect to where each could traverse throughout the house.

When questioned about the domestic violence matter by media personnel, THA Chief Secretary, Orville London said he was not aware of the details.

“I am not aware of the matter and if I was aware of what transpired, I would not comment. I cannot remove Mr Sandy as an assemblyman. There is a difference between influence and authority, and I would not indicate how I would assert my influence in the matter. I will only deal with the facts,” he said.

The matter was adjourned.
