Women ‘not coming back’ for Broomes matter

Social Share

The two women accused of assaulting former Parkinson Memorial Secondary School principal Jeff Broomes want the matter brought to an end.

Helen Louise Gill, 59, of Forde’s Road, Clapham, Christ Church, and Danissa Shontelle Foster, 26, of 2A North Close, Wildey, St Michael, were also charged that having lawfully entered the premises of the school, they misconducted themselves by behaving in a threatening manner. Foster is also accused of intentionally damaging Broomes’ vehicle.

Both women had been released on $5 000 bail by Magistrate Deborah Holder in 2013.

Yesterday, they once again returned to the District “A” Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

Gill told the DAILY NATION afterwards that the matter had been going on for the past six years and it was beginning to frustrate both her and her daughter. Foster, pregnant with her third child, is due to deliver anytime soon.

“It’s taking a lot out of my work. I do private security work, and my boss tell me if I have to take another day to go to court, look for another job. Is only me working and I have my child, my two grandchildren and this one on the way to look after,” Gill said, as tears streamed down her face.

She was so upset, she was adamant she would no longer attend court.

“I want it deal with it once and for all. Nobody sending a summons for Broomes and he not coming to court. Well, I not coming back to court again. Find me because I ain’t coming back. He ain’t coming, I ain’t coming neither. We ain’t coming back to this court; find me and charge me and everybody would know why I get send up,” she said.

Foster said she too was very frustrated.

“This is a whole six years this going on and he not coming to court, and if we don’t come they will send a [summons] for we,” she said before exiting the courtyard.

The women are scheduled to return to court on August 28. (RA)
