Careless in applying for status and careless in taking care of her child.
That was how Magistrate Graveney Bannister described an illegal teenage resident who nipped out to Chefette leaving her three-year-old toddler unattended in a bedroom in a house that was also home to eight other people.
The magistrate was speaking to 19-year-old Vincentian Valcina Veronica Pompey, who was before him in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Pompey, who was staying at Strathclyde, St Michael, had just pleaded guilty to the charge that being a person who had care of a three-year-old on November 23, she left him unattended for an unreasonable amount of time.
It was more than five hours after the boy, who was wandering along Strathclyde Road, had been picked up by police and housed at the Nightengale Home, that the woman realized her child was missing and made a report to police.
