Tribune Court Reporter


AN AMERICAN woman was placed on six months probation yesterday after admitting in court to having marijuana while on vacation in Nassau.

Shakima Worrell, 37, of Williamsburg, Virginia, stood before Magistrate Samuel McKinney on a charge of possession of dangerous drugs.

On February 6 in New Providence, Worrell was arrested by police after she was found with six grams of Indian Hemp.

She pleaded guilty. Magistrate McKinney placed Worrell on six months probation. Should the accused be found in breach in this jurisdiction during that time, she would face a fine of $400 or a month in prison.

A local man, Perron Robinson, 26, also appeared before Magistrate McKinney on a separate charge of possession of dangerous drugs.

On February 3 in New Providence, Robinson was arrested after he was found with 13 grams of Indian Hemp.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and was placed on two years probation, which if found in default would carry a $500 fine or three months in prison.
