Can’t take ‘book talk’ in church

There is a simple reason, said Crystal Nadeen Grosvenor, why she refused to go to her mother’s church. She does not understand it.

“That church is talk about black book and red book and things I don’t understand,” she told Court No. 1 of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

And it is because she refused to attend, she said, that her mother withdrew as her surety on Tuesday, landing her on remand at HMP Dodds for the past few days.

“She wants me to marry, and me and my boyfriend is got we arguments and thing and I ain’t feel comfortable and I don’t want to get into something I can’t get out of,” she said.

Grosvenor, 28, of London Bourne Towers, Bay Street, St Michael, was back in court yesterday, where she changed her plea and admitted she had cocaine as well as cannabis on July 29, 2015.

Prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Reid said the drugs were found in small quantities.

“I was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” she explained.

“I was at my boyfriend’s. He does rent a room, and another guy, another room. And the police come and they find the drugs in the house. I had nothing to do with it, but they carry ’long everybody,” she said, as she begged the court to give her a chance, adding that she had never been in trouble before.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick ordered her to complete 200 hours of community service. He adjourned the matter until April 13 for a progress report. (HLE)
