American Woman Fined for Stealing Credit Card then Going on Spending Spree

Jamaica News: An American woman was fined $100,000 or three months’ imprisonment on Wednesday, July 10 for stealing a credit card from a passenger at the Sangster International Airport and then using it to spend over US$60.

Annesha Boykin, a Certified Nurse Assistant of Durham, North Carolina, appeared before the St. James Parish Court on Wednesday, July 10 where she pleaded guilty to simple larceny and obtaining credit by fraud.

Boykin, who was on her way out of the island, was arrested on July 8 this year after a complaint was received from an outgoing passenger that he had lost his credit card.

It is reported that the passenger was going through the screening area when he inadvertently left a black pouch containing his credit card on the counter.

Having realized that he did not have his belongings, the complainant made a report, and a video footage was later seen with the accused woman making unauthorized transactions totalling US$62 at a duty free shop, which turned out to be that of the complainant.

The transaction was cancelled and Boykin was arrested and charged.

Amid Wednesday’s court sitting attorney-at-law Adrian Dayes requested a non-custodial sentence and also pointed out to presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small that his client was of limited means.

The attorney said Boykin had also expressed remorse and added that the time she spent in custody has rehabilitated her.

In passing sentence, Wong-Small fined the accused woman $50,000 or three months’ imprisonment on each charge.
