A Jamaican woman with no fixed place of abode has become the first person to be charged with breaking curfew.
Christean Bridgette Beacon, 23, appeared in the District "A" Magistrates' Court charged with remaining outdoors along Government Hill, St Michael, without a reasonable explanation, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. on March 30.
She pleaded guilty and was remanded to HMP Dodds until April 29, pending deportation to Jamaica.
However, if Jamaica's closed borders prevent her deportation, she will reappear in the District D Court on April 29. (HLE)
