Time up


HMP Dodds will be home for a mother and daughter for the next six months after they failed to pay court-ordered compensation to a woman and two police officers they assaulted.

Stephaney Roseta Clarke, 53, and her daughter, Sabrina Faith Hannaway, both of Kendall Hill, Briar Hall, Christ Church, failed to pay the total $1,500, even after the court gave them an extra nine months to find the money.

The two were found guilty by former Oistins Magistrate, now Madam Justice Pamela Beckles, of assaulting Carol Ifill on December 13, 2013, occasioning her actual bodily harm; and assaulting Police Constable Samantha Alcide and Sergeant Kelvin Browne in the execution on their duties on January 5, 2014.

Clarke was also found culpable of resisting Sergeant Browne in the execution of his duties.

For assaulting Ifill, Justice Beckles ordered the mother, on December 26, 2015, to pay $750 on or before February 26, 2016 or face an alternative of six months’ imprisonment.

She and her daughter also had to pay $375 each for assaulting and resisting the police officers, which carried the same alternative.

However, instead of paying the money by February 26, they reappeared in court before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch on that date and requested an extension. That was granted, and they were told they had until May 9 to pay the money.

But the two turned up at the court ten days later and applied for a further extension, which was granted – September 30. The mother and daughter were subsequently granted a final deadline of November 17, after they made yet another request.

However, the two failed to appear in court when they were expected to turn up with proof that they had paid, resulting in the magistrate issuing a warrant for their arrests.

They made an appearance in court today, almost a month later.

“To date, they have not paid a cent, Sir . . .” prosecutor Sergeant Azel Skeete told the court.

Chief Magistrate Birch gave them no more changes.

“You were given . . . extensions. . . . Ladies, the patience of the system and the court is now at an end. The imposed sentence is six months imprisonment,” he ruled.

      Eddy you are so right,I said to my coworkers a while ago,these Caribbean countries should have an arrangement that their nationals should be transferred to their country to spend their time impose on them in another country.eg if a non national brought contraband items,a fine or time was impose on them and they end up in prison….it is more costly on us the taxpayers to keep them here for 6,9,12mths ect.food,shelter,safety,utility….send them to their country to spend their prison time….let the expenses be on their country

    Hmm, they never had any intentions of paying, probaly thought the magistrate would let them off. But they stupid, cause I mean, they asking for the extensions and they were granted each time, but were they really trying to come up with the funds??
    Probaly they will sit now and reflect on what they did.

    I think it’s time the prison system have some kinda program in which clowns such as these have to work to help feed themselves . Can’t the prisons raise chickens and plant vegetables and have theses people help to sustain theirselves while in jail ?

    They are born & bred Bajans.
    They are my neighbors I complained about on fb for dumping their garbage over my fence for almost a year & chopping open my chainlink fence with a collins to dump their garbage.
    They live “wrong & strong” believing themselves to be untouchable.
    They believed that by requesting repeated extensions the court would become exhausted & let them off. They had a plan…
    This is just the beginning, there’s more to come, the law enforcers are warming up…
    …Jah NEVER sleeps!
    My neighbors & I will have a VERY happy, CLEAN New Year.

    Wish you all the same. XO

    They are both out of prison unfortunately but they have more charges & convictions to go to court for so hopefully their beds are being reserved up the road.
