Woman resists arrest, gets placed on bond
A St Philip woman who had a change of heart, was given a chance to ‘right her wrongs’ by Magistrate Christopher Birch.
In a previous appearance in the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court, Tamara Taylor had pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest, obstruction and failing to give her name and address to police almost two years ago.
However, when she returned to court today, the 34-year-old of Emerald Park West, St Philip changed her plea to guilty, regarding the offences committed on August 24, 2014.
“I would like to extend my apologies to the court. Having reflected on my actions, I would sincerely like to extend my apologies,” she told Birch when asked if she had anything to say to the court.
And while the Magistrate lauded her for not wasting the court’s time, he told her he “took a grim view of that kind of behaviour”.
He also warned her that her actions did not reflect well on her before placing her on bond to keep the peace for the next 12 months for resisting arrest. If she breaches that bond, she will have to pay $350 forthwith or spend 28 days in prison.
She was reprimanded and discharged on the other offences.
Taylor was represented by Mohia M’aat.
