Court Awaits Fake Doctor’s True Identity

Jamaica Crime News, St James: The St. James Parish Court is awaiting verification of the true identity of Alicia Patrice England, the fake doctor who allegedly conned a Montego Bay businessman out of nearly US$20,000.

England, who also goes by the name of England McCrane, and who is represented by attorney-at-law Martyn Thomas, appeared before the St. James Parish Court Tuesday morning.

The accused woman, who allegedly posed as a medical doctor under the name ‘England McCrane,’ has been charged with obtaining money by false pretences, uttering a forged document and breaching the Medical Act.

On Tuesday, attorney Thomas who had previously made an application for the return of England’s cellular phone, which had been taken while she was in custody in Falmouth, Trelawny, said the phone had still not been returned to his client. The phone, he said, contains information that could help in her defence.

The prosecutor then told the court that the investigating officer had indicated that he would have picked up the phone while on his way from Kingston, but up to press time, the officer had not turn up in court.

The prosecutor also disclosed to the court that she was not yet in receipt of the additional documents from overseas and was waiting for an update from the officer.

In the interim, Thomas indicated to presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small that he would like to make a bail application on his client’s behalf. Cognizant of the fact that his client’s identity has to be verified, Thomas told the court that he would like the officer to make checks with the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) as it relates to her true identity, as he said the defence would like to move forward.

In response to the attorney, Wong-Small made it clear to him that she was not inclined to grant his client bail until her identity has been verified.

The matter was subsequently set for mention on May 28 when a bail application is expected to be made on England’s behalf. She was remanded to police custody until that date.

In June 2017, England, under the pretext of a medical doctor in training, allegedly conned a Montego Bay businessman out of US$19,243, after informing him she was expecting a settlement of US$5.9 million in a wrongly death claim that involved her brother, and was seeking his assistance in investment ideas.
