Street character ‘Natalie’ gets a break

A self-employed woman, in her late 30s, today made a successful application for two criminal offences against her to be dismissed.

Well-known street character Natalie Nicole Harewood, of Monroe Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, was charged with robbing Latoya Benn of a $75 handbag, a $550 cellular phone, and $400 in cash on September 8, 2012.

She had earlier pleaded not guilty to the offence, as well as that of issuing the threatening words “when I get bail, it ain’t done there, I gine kick the child out of your belly” to Benn.

Today, Harewood told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that she had been coming to court for the past five years and the case had not made any progress.

“I think this is too long,” she submitted.

The magistrate agreed and dismissed the matters against her for want of prosecution.

However, she returns court on January 30 in connection with a drug case in which she continues to maintain her innocence.
