Woman on serious bodily harm charge

Strict conditions where imposed on a St Peter woman who appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on a serious bodily harm charge.

Adonna Elane Boyce, 26, of Gays Gap is accused on injuring Alvin Fredericks on October 22, with intent to maim, disable or disable him.

Boyce was not required to plead after the charge was read to her this afternoon by Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No.1 Court.

In his submission, police prosecutor Sergeant Neville Watson objected to bail for the accused on the grounds that the complainant in the matter was in “a bad way and detained in critical condition at the QEH [Queen Elizabeth Hospital]”.

“We fear that he may take a turn for the worse,” he told the court.

The prosecutor also revealed that information reaching him suggested there was also need to protect the accused, even as he went on to point to the “very seriousness” of matter.

However, Boyce’s attorney Rasheed Belgrave pleaded for his client to be released on bail, based on the fact that she was the primary caregiver of her seven-year-old child.

The attorney further argued that if granted bail, Boyce would accede to any conditions imposed on her, including reporting to a police station.

“If the charge is upgraded . . . she can easily be found,” Belgrave said.

After taking into consideration the welfare of the Boyce’s child, Magistrate Frederick granted her bail in the sum of $20 000 with one surety.

However, Boyce’s surety had to submit her travel documents to the court before she could be released. Boyce also has to report to the District ‘E’ Police Station every Monday, Tuesday and Friday until the case is over.

She returns to court on November 16.

    THE FUNNY THING ABOUT THIS WHOLE SITUATION IS THAT THEY ARE ADVOCATING AGAINST DOMESTIC ABUSE, A WOMAN PLEADS GUILTY TO STABBING A MAN IN HIS ABDOMEN, AND IS GRANTED BAIL INSTANTLY… WHAT IF IT WAS A MAN THAT STABBED A WOMAN IN HER BELLY… EVEN FROM READING THE COMMENTS HERE IT IS AS THOUGH SHE’S CHARGED FOR LOITERING.

    I really wanted to stay clear of this one but I must comment. @Jerome I am in total agreement with you. If it was a man you would see the amount of female participation on this site, hear about how cruel the man is, hear that he should be put away for life, yes, the talk of domestic violence and that women are victims etc.

    I wonder how many men are crying inwardly? How many men are afraid to go to the police because they may be laughed at or worse, not even taken seriously?

    Violence is a crime. If found guilty of that crime she should receive the full brunt of the law. We as women want equal rights and benefits right? Well we must be held responsible for our actions!!!!
