Mother uses child to get money on the street
A mother accused of using her 15-year-old daughter to solicit on the street and return proceeds to her, was dragged before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court earlier today.
Charged with cruelty to child is Winsome White.
She did not enter a plea, however her attorney told the court that her client denies knowledge of the allegations presented by her daughter who is now a ward of the state.
Allegations are that whenever the accused was not satisfied she would beat her daughter and verbally assault her.
The medical in the matter was outstanding.
The court was told that the child in question has been relocated to the Homestead Place of Safety.
White's bail was extended for her to return to court on April 5.
