Don’t come back!

COURT TODAY BLOCK“It is my desire that you do not return to this country ever again. You are not a desirable.”

With those words, Magistrate Christopher Birch today ended four drug matters against a Trinidadian woman, who was fined $30 000 after she was convicted on two drug offences.

Stacey Flora Catherine James was handed over to immigration officials for deportation after paying the fine earlier today.

James, a 29-year-old store manageress from 7705 Eric Roach Circular Phase 7, La Horquette, Trinidad, was remanded two weeks ago after pleading guilty to the October 16 offences of possession, importation, trafficking and intent to supply 2.19 kilogrammes of cocaine.

She was fined $15 000 forthwith on each count of possession and importation, while she was convicted, reprimanded and discharged for intent to supply. James was reprimanded and discharged on the trafficking charge.

Sergeant Azel Skeete, the police prosecutor, told the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court that police saw James walking along St. Lawrence Gap, Christ Church, pulling a suitcase. They stopped her, she agreed to a search and a false bottom was found in the suitcase concealing the drugs.

James was represented by attorney-at-law Kristen Turton.

    Hal, the newspaper article explicitly stated that she was handed over to immigration officials for deportation AFTER the fines were paid. Your propaganda is not making any sense….
