Ken-I Young is charged that on Monday March 8 at the Leeward Bus Terminal he used indecent language in a public place to wit, “Leh Isis tek a man fuh mind um. Mudda****. We duh wah no money. We duh wah no money, all we want is 12”.
Young appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, March 12 where he was granted bail in the amount of EC$500 and asked to return to court on Monday July 12, 2021.

The recording was made while Young was holding a placard and later uploaded to Facebook where it went viral.
