  • Landlord stones tenant for money

    A landlord who engaged his tenants in a stone-throwing debacle over the payment of water bills - and caused injury in the process - was sentenced to three months' imprisonment last Friday.

    Charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, possession of an offensive weapon, and using indecent language is Devon Weir.

    He pleaded guilty to all three offences in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court and gave the court an explanation for the assault charge.

    The court heard that on January 24, Weir assaulted the complainant using a stone. He hit her on the right hand causing a bruise, swelling, and pain.

    Weir said: "Me and her don't have anything. I rent a place to them and I went and asked them for the money for water. I went back and him start throw stone at me and run inside the house. I threw back a stone and it hit her."

    Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey asked Weir, "How much time you ever pleaded guilty?"

    "Put it at three times, Your Honour," answered Weir.

    After scolding the accused, who had a challenge keeping quiet in the courtroom when told to, Pusey handed down her sentence.

    Weir was sentenced to three months for assault, 10 days for possession of an offensive weapon, and 10 days for indecent language.

    The sentence is to run concurrently.

    This is one of the reasons why my husband and I have resolved not to take any house help at least for now, even though it’s quite challenging facing the domestics chores alone but then some of these stories one hears make the sacrifice worthwhile. My husband and I have to manage ourselves by ourselves. For those of you who keep house helps, please be vigilant because sometimes you don’t even have to maltreat some of these maids before they unleash wickedness on you and for those of you that indeed maltreat house helps, think twice o, these are people that care for you especially your kids. If you must keep them, please treat them right.

  • Jamaican woman dumps new husband 20 MINUTES after arriving in the UK… and guess who paid for her £5k Visa

    • Heartbroken charity worker believes she ‘joined boyfriend with whom she planned scheme’
    • He paid £5,000 for her visa

    A charity worker who spent £5,000 bringing his new Jamaican bride to the UK was left heartbroken after she abandoned him within 20 minutes of walking through his front door.

    Johnny Gannon spent thousands arranging a visa for 24-year-old Patrice Chambers so they could live in marital bliss in his council flat in Perth, Scotland.

    But as soon as Patrice arrived in Perth, she sent trusting Mr Gannon, 57, out to buy Pot Noodles. When he returned she grabbed her bags and told him she was going.

    Within 20 minutes of arriving through his front door she had flagged down a car and caught a train. He found out she had also run up a £500 bill on his mobile phone.



    Heartbroken Mr Gannon, who married Patrice in Jamaica early this year, believes his new wife fled to Bristol to meet a Jamaican boyfriend with whom she had organised the scheme.


    He told the Daily Mirror: ‘I was looking forward to spending the rest of my life with Patrice but I think she had planned all along to do this.

    ‘My relationship with her wasn’t something I’d done by mail order. I’ve known her for two years and it seemed very much like the real thing to me. She has used me and I feel humiliated.

    ‘I had a vision of happiness laid out. I feel like a bit of a fool.’

    Mr Gannon takes regular holidays in Jamaica and met Patrice there two years ago.

    A friend set them up on a blind date but despite the 33-year age gap he fell in love with her after their first meeting in a romantic bar in the resort of Treasure Beach.

    As the couple watched dophins playing in the water he believed he had found the girl of his dreams.

    ‘She ran a little bar and I’d hang out with her there,’ he said. ‘She was intelligent and I myself thought she had the potential to be a great life partner.

    ‘Of course I was pinching myself over how lucky I’d been to end up with such a beautiful young woman. But the relationship was getting better over time so I wasn’t suspecting any kind of sting operation.’

    He heard from a friend that she had a boyfriend back in the UK but when challenged she said it was in the past.

    His love for her meant that he trusted her and he continued to see her on trips to Jamaica.

    In fact, it was her who first brought up the subject of marriage and a ceremony was organised on one of his trips to the country.

    He had paid for her dress and hair on the big day and when he returned to Scotland worked on getting a visa for her.

    In the end he sent her £700 for paperwork in Jamaica and even more money when she said it had been stolen.

    This year alone he has spent more than £4,000 on her.

    Friends met the couple off the plane and they flew to Edinburgh to start their new life together but she told him she didn’t want to be with him and when he returned from shopping for her he took her to the railway station.

    He has reported her to police and plans to contact the UK Border Agency and now he is considering how he will tell his mother.

  • American charged with defrauding Caribbean immigrants

    WASHINGTON, United States (CMC) — The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) says an American had been arrested and charged with defrauding Caribbean and other immigrants.

    The DOJ said Helaman Hansen, 63, was arrested after a US federal grand jury returned a 13-count indictment charging him with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, 11 counts of mail fraud and one count of wire fraud for operating a fraudulent adult-adoption programme that targeted undocumented immigrants.

    According to court documents, between October2012 and January 2016, Hansen and others used various entities, such as Americans Helping America (AHA), to sell members of immigrant communities, memberships in what he called a “Migration Programme.”

    A central feature of the programme was the fraudulent claim that immigrant adults could achieve US citizenship by being legally adopted by an American citizen and completing a list of additional tasks.



    At first, memberships were sold for annual fees of US$150, but that fee gradually grew and eventually was as high as US$10,000, according to the indictment.


    “The indictment returned today alleges a particularly predatory and manipulative type of fraud that takes advantage of the hopes and dreams of undocumented immigrants to extract fees based on false promises,” said US Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner for the Eastern District of California.

    “The adoption of adult aliens is not a legitimate path to US citizenship. While the charges against this defendant are only allegations at this point, no one should pay fees to anyone making false promises of citizenship through adult adoption,” he said.

    Ryan L Spradlin the special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigation’s (HSI) San Francisco Field Office, said “it is very unfortunate that some in our communities would choose to misrepresent the American immigration system to deceive and hurt those who are trying only to make a better life for themselves and their families”.

    According to the indictment, although some victims completed the adoption stage of the “Migration Programme,” not one person obtained citizenship.

    The indictment states that, as early as October 2012, Hansen was informed by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services that immigrants adopted after their 16th birthdays could not obtain citizenship in the manner Hansen was promoting.

    “Despite that notification, Hansen and his co-conspirators induced approximately 500 victims to pay more than US$500,000 to join the fraudulent programme,” the DOJ said.

    If convicted, Hansen faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a US$250,000 fine, the DOJ said.
