A Hinson’s Island woman has been ordered to pay $7,500 for damage she did to a boat belonging to a neighbor.

Earlier this week, Mary-Beth Sherwin, 53, pleaded guilty to taking a vehicle without authority in March 2018.

The court heard that the owner had secured his 16′ skiff as there was stormy weather, and when he went to the ferry dock the next day, he noticed the boat was missing.

The boat was located in the area of Tribe Road, Paget. The prosecution said the skiff had received some $8,155.10 in damage.

A resident at the Tribe Road location said he had assisted a woman who was having trouble with a boat.

Acting Supreme Court Justice Juan Wolffe ordered $7,500 in payment to be paid in monthly installments.

He also ordered a social inquiry report and BARC report for Ms Sherwin.
