Woman accused of damaging car


A 26-year-old woman who pleaded guilty to one of two charges brought against her was granted bail today.

Nikita Hettie Maria Brathwaite, a resident of Yearwood Road, Black Rock, St Michael, is accused of using a vehicle without the owner’s consent or without lawful authority, sometime between September 3 and 4.

She told Acting Magistrate Sandra Rawlins that she was not guilty of that offence, but admitted to damaging a car belonging to Akinola Griffith on September 1.

However, prosecutor Sergeant Vernon Waithe told Rawlins that the Crown could not disclose the facts of that case at this time since the two charges were intertwined.

Brathwaite returns to court on September 14 when Griffith is also expected to appear before the acting magistrate.

She remains on $1,600 bail in the meantime.
