Court: Woman Sentenced To 30 Days In Prison

May 26, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [May 26], 26-year-old Trimiea Roland pleaded guilty to unlawfully causing $600 worth of damage to a sliding glass door at a Warwick residence, and was sentenced to thirty days in jail.

Prosecutor Ms Nicole Smith told Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo that late morning on 9th April 2015, Ms Roland had been seen to throw something at the door and break the glass. Later that day she was picked up by police but initially denied the incident.

Ms Roland appeared in Court, pleaded not guilty, and was given a May trial date. However she failed to appear on that date, was arrested on a bench warrant, and was put before the Magistrate this morning.

Asked by the Magistrate to explain why she had caused the damage, Ms Roland replied: “Because we had an incident. It’s personal.”

This morning Ms Roland complained to the Magistrate that the food that she had been given while she was held in custody was rotten and had made her “sick to her stomach.”

Accepting her guilty plea and convicting her, the Magistrate sentenced her to 30 days in prison and told Ms Roland: “Hopefully, you’ll get some better food there.”
