A Vermont woman was on Monday brought before the Serious Offence’s Court in Kingstown, charged with four counts of drug possession, three of them being cocaine.

The woman, 31-year-old Jolette Indirah Laborde, who is originally from Petit Bordel, was charged that on June 11, 2017 at Vermont, she had in her possession a controlled drug, to wit 10 grammes of cocaine with intent to supply to another.

She was further charged that on the said date in Vermont, she had in her possession a controlled drug, to wit, one gramme of cocaine.

Two additional charges are that on June 11 at Vermont, she had in her possession 481 grammes of cannabis with intent to supply to another and that she had in her possession one rock of cocaine.

Laborde pleaded not guilty to all four charges, which have been brought under Section 7 of the Drug Prevention of Misuse Act.

The prosecution did not object to bail but asked for sufficient surety.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias granted the accused woman bail in the sum of EC$3,000 with one surety.

She is to return to court on Sept. 25, 2017 for the next hearing in the matter.

    When will these woman be treated in the exact same way by the courts as men are treated? Is is so sexist for women to be given lighter penalties for the exact same crimes. Doing so is the mark of a primitive and backward society.
