A 23-year-old woman who was, on Monday, convicted of wounding another young female has been urged to change her ways before joining the British Navy.
Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett gave the advice to Chelsea Grant at the Kingstown Magistrate Court.
Burnett found Grant, an Ottley Hall resident, guilty of a charge that on Sept. 21, 2018, at Kingstown, she assaulted Angelique Fitzpatrick, of Cane Garden, causing actual bodily harm.
The magistrate told Grant that he initially thought that her pregnancy might have contributed to her actions.
“But from what I saw in the courtroom during the trial, I was wrong in that opinion,” Burnett told Grant.
“You are going to work in a disciplined organisation called the Navy, take my advice. Watch your attitude. If you take that attitude where you are going to work, I don’t think you will last long,” Burnett said.
The senior magistrate bonded Grant for one year in the sum of EC$1,000 or three months in prison.
