 Woman caught peeing in police station yard freed

Parish Judge Vaughn Smith on Friday set free a woman who was dragged before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court for urinating on the compound of the Hunts Bay Police Station.

The woman, Adesia Johnson, was seen stooping between two vehicles by a female cop. Johnson told the court that she went to the station to visit a family member, and while there, had the urge to use the bathroom. She said that she asked to use a restroom but was ignored by the cops on duty at the station.

She also told the court that she explained to the cop that she has bladder problems and that was the reason she decided to urinate there.

Judge Vaughn Smith, after hearing Johnson's explanation, decided to relieve her of the charge.
