Bishop granted bail
Bishop Ann Rose, the woman who said she was trying to cast demons out of a 12-year-old girl, and Kim Bridgette Christabel Thompson were granted bail after appearing in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court earlier this afternoon.
Rose, 77, of Roumaika House, Dayrells Road, Christ Church and 60-year-old Thompson, of Maxwell Coast Road, in the same parish denied assaulting a 12-year-old girl on March 10.
However, the girl’s 65-year-old grandmother, Magdalene Agard, of Jemmotts, Durham, St Lucy, pleaded guilty to assaulting the child. The housekeeper also admitted to being a person over the age of 16 and having charge of a child, that she willfully exposed the child in a manner likely to cause injury to her health.
Agard was granted $3000 bail and a pre-sentencing report was ordered on her. She returns to court on May 29.
Rose and Thompson were also released on $3 000 bail, and ordered by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to stay away from the complainant. They will return to court on September 4. The charges stem from a video which went viral. (RA)
