Alleged fraudster pleads not guilty

Not guilty was the plea of a woman in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Friday, after she is accused of allegedly proffering a fraudulent transaction.

Charged with conspiracy to defraud and attempt to obtain goods by means of false pretence is Judith Mullings-McGregor.

The Crown alleges that on Friday, November 22, 2013, Mullings-McGregor attended a business place in St Andrew and ordered a quantity of goods valued at approximately $189,600.

The court heard that she submitted two cheques valued at this amount to pay for the goods. Checks made at the bank later revealed that there was no money in the account.

A sting operation was conducted and the accused apprehended and charged.

In court, Mullings-McGregor told Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey that she had nothing to do with the charges brought against her and maintained her innocence. The RM, however, told her to prove her innocence at the trial.
