Kingston, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Baby Snatcher Gets Three Years Probation: 49-yr-old Lorna Williamson, medical assistant was sentenced to three (3) years probation by Justice Martin Gayle when she appeared in the Home Circuit Court on Friday, December 15, 2017.
Williamson, who was previously charged with stealing a one-day-old baby from the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) in December last year, pled guilty on October 19, sentence reduction day.
Reports are that Ms. Williamson, who was found with the baby a few days after the incident, told the police that she wanted to present the child to her boyfriend after she had a miscarriage.
