Woman charged for cocaine apparatus

A 31-year-old woman who has no fixed place of abode will call HMP Dodds home for at least the next 28 days.

Roseann Elizabeth Burgess appeared in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today charged with possession of apparatus fit and intended for the misuse of cocaine.

The unemployed woman told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that she was not guilty of the offence, which was allegedly committed earlier today.

When it came time for a bail application to be made, police prosecutor Station Sergeant Janice Ifiil objected to Burgess’ release based on her antecedents as well as the fact that she had no fixed place to live.

In making her bail application, Burgess told the magistrate: “It was a misunderstanding”.

She declined to say anything further and the magistrate denied her request to be released.

Burgess is scheduled to make her second appearance before Cuffy-Sargeant on April 26.

    Because she doesn’t have a home
    (1 house)-(1 house)= no house/homeless
    Anne Ince I hope this answer clarifies your query.

    Not necessarily a stupid question Jono maybe she was laid off with the batch of NCC workers and couldn’t pay her rent.

    This is sad. At her age and homeless, aren’t there any family that could assist ?

    Went to school with her omg she has been through so much in the school days
    Her hair was nice long and pretty
    Like this really broke my heart to see her like this
    She use to live in a foster home back when were going school together
    I move to new york when I was 18 but the last time I saw her was when i was 16 going on 17
    Just the other day I ask my bestfriend home about her and she told me she saw her in town and ask for money to buy food etc but she couldnt even remember her
    Such is life
    It was always hard for her from young
