Woman caught with ganja given community service

Laughter engulfed the Corporate Area Resident's Magistrate's Court on Wednesday after a woman, oblivious of the charges brought against her, was given 40 hours of community service.

The accused, Sherril Gordon, who was charged with introducing contraband into a lock-up and possession of ganja, was ordered fingerprinted. She is also jointly charged with Richard Hamilton, who was given 60 hours of community service. He was also ordered fingerprinted.

pleaded guilty

The court heard that, on the day of the incident, Hamilton gave Gordon a bag and asked her to give it to another man who had been incarcerated. When asked whether she pleaded guilty or not, Gordon responded, "mi don't understand that sar," with a quizzical look on her face. She later pleaded guilty with explanation and told Resident Magistrate Simone Maddix, "a wan man beg mi carry it in deh, Your Honour".

No evidence was offered on Gordon's charge of possession of ganja.
