Pompey stood before the Magistrate and stated “I don’t want her to go to jail. She have done so much for the country and she is a role model.”
She added, “I just want to be compensated because I need to fix my edges which was ripped out. I need the money to fix it because it is expensive.”
Magistrate McGusty, after listening to both sides, adjourned the matter until November 14 for report.
