Woman punished for causing trouble at Welfare Department

Magistrate Douglas Frederick today found Celia Romana Nurse guilty of two offences which occurred more than three years ago – entering the Welfare Department and behaving in an annoying manner, and committing assault.

And the 52-year-old resident of 1st Avenue Vauxhall, Christ Church has been placed on a bond for one crime and convicted, reprimanded and discharged for the other.

Following a brief submission from the policeman who investigated the offences that occurred on April 9, 2013, Nurse told the court that it was not her intention to assault anybody that day.

“I never assaulted the gentleman, because to do it inside the government building would be a charge. To do it outside would not be a charge . . . I have that much sense . . . the bag hitting him was just an accident,” she explained.

After hearing Nurse, Frederick placed her on a bond to keep the peace for six months on the assault charge.

If she breaches the order she will either pay the court $1 500 forthwith or spend three months in prison.

Nurse was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the other charge.

In another case before the court today, St Michael resident Kemar Omar Reece was granted $2 500 bail on drug charges.

The 26-year-old of Bedford Lane, Roebuck Street is charged with possession of cocaine and cannabis on October 26.

He denied both allegations.

Reece, who is represented by attorney Anya Lorde, returns to court on December 8.
