Court: 80-Year-Old Charged Over Dog’s Noise

August 14, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Aug 14], 80-year-old  St David’s resident Yulisse Tucker-Carlington stood before Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo and pleaded guilty to keeping a Yorkshire Terrier dog that repeatedly made noises to the annoyance of neighbours.

The Magistrate fined her $300 for the offence which was committed over the time between March and May this year.

Mrs Tucker-Carlington explained to the Magistrate that the dog, named “Cutie” would only respond to loud voices and that she had a very quiet voice.

She told the Magistrate that her husband was usually able to quieten the dog and that as far as she was knew, “Cutie” was quiet by night; but by day , “Cutie” would do as dogs do and bark at strangers who approached the residence.

Mrs Tucker-Carlington did aver to the Magistrate that perhaps “Cutie” might not be as well-trained as other dogs owned by other members of her family. Her husband told the Magistrate that if “Cutie” made noises at night, he would get up and quieten her.

Mrs Tucker-Carlington assured the Magistrate that she would pay the fine on Monday.
