Penny Sparrow court case delayed for possible plea deal

KwaZulu-Natal estate agent Penny Sparrow appeared in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court on the south coast on Monday.

At the start of proceedings‚ the state and defence requested a short adjournment to allow for negotiations regarding a plea.

Magistrate Vincent Hlatshwayo granted the brief adjournment after expressing his unhappiness by the delay.

He said both parties should have done this a long time ago and not on Monday.

Sparrow is facing a charge of crimen injuria‚ stemming from her Facebook post where she called black people monkeys.
