October 31, 2016

An 18 year old woman was on Monday sentenced to pay a fine of $25,000 or spend six months in prison after she pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding.

The woman, Regina Williams, had smirk on her face as presiding judge Judith Pusey, handed down the sentence in the St Andrew Parish Court.

“Yuh like custody, miss?," the judge asked Williams.

"Mi feel yuh should stay there a little longer enuh because yuh stab the lady three times,” Pusey added.

Allegations are that Williams stabbed a woman in her upper body during an argument. 

Williams begged Pusey to exercise mercy, telling her that she is the mother of a young child.

“Mi learn mi lesson and mi nah go do it again, believe me. Mi have a baby, miss, and mi nuh trouble people. Please ma’am,” Williams said.

Pusey, however, was unmoved.  

“Well yuh going to do some time round here suh fi stab up the lady three time. Yuh neva know say yuh have baby fi tek care of when yuh draw di knife pon har eeh? Why yuh draw di knife, miss? Yuh going to pay the state $25,000 or spend six months in prison," the judge said.
