Delay in Briton’s Drug Case Ruling

Latest Jamaica News, St James: A St. James Parish Court judge’s ruling in the drug case of 24-year-old British national Chevelle James was delayed by almost three weeks because the judge who was to hand down the verdict was not available.

James, a resident of London, England, was to know on Friday, July 26 whether she was guilty or not guilty of drug charges, but parish judge Sandria Wong-Small who was to hand down the ruling was not available.

During the sitting on Friday, presiding judge Annette Austin rescheduled the matter for August 14 and extended James’ bail.

James was arrested at the Sangster International Airport on July 22, 2017 while she was preparing to board a flight bound for Milan, Italy.

During a search of her luggage, nine tins marked Linstead Market Ackee and Calaloo were found to contain cocaine weighing approximately nine pounds.

She was subsequently arrested and charged with possession of, dealing in and attempting to export cocaine.

She is represented by attorney-at-law Khadine Colman.
