63 year-old US citizen fined on drug related charge

A sixty-three-year-old retired woman from the United States of America, arrested at the Maurice Bishop International Airport last Tuesday moments before boarding a flight to the US, was ordered to pay an immediate fine after pleading guilty to being in possession of three grams of cocaine.

Represented by defense counsel Peter David, the retired yachter who goes by the name of Hollieeilender Briehischimberg was fined two thousand five hundred dollars to be paid forthwith or in default spend nine months in prison. Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill, presiding at the St. George Number One Magistrate Court last Wednesday, handed down the fine.

 According to information emanating from the court, the drug, which carried a street value of EC$ 300.00 was found in a carry-on bag during the routine search carried out by security officers at the airport.

During the brief court sitting the 63-year-old wasted no time in admitting through her lawyer that she is a user of cocaine, for various reasons but unfortunately forget to put the stuff in her luggage bag.

 Defense asked the court for leniency on his client’s behalf sighting the quantity of the substance involved and the forthrightness of his client; elements worthy of a discount in sentence. 

 The informer was reliably informed that the money has since been paid and the 63-year-old has since left the country.
