After spending more than a week in quarantine awaiting results of COVID-19 tests, eleven persons were taken to court for gathering at a private residence when it was restricted to do so. Police say that a group of fourteen persons were found socializing inside a home on Aloe Vera Street. The eight women and three men were taken to court alongside their attorney Richard “Dickie” Bradley who represented them before Magistrate Stephanie Gillett.
Appearing in court were Pashawn Stuart, 25; Joyce Belisle, 47; Carlet Belisle, 46; Kendra Lacayo; Naomi Burgess, 28; Philipa Palma, 21; Tyrone Pinto, 26; Jerome Lewis, 29; Krystal Hamilton, 26; Shane Godoy, 27; and Brittany Belisle, 28. They were each read the charge of being found gathering at a private residence when it was prohibited to do so. They each pleaded not guilty to the charge and since there was no objection to bail, they were offered police bail in the sum of $800 without any further detention. The group is due back in court on November 16, 2020.
