No bail for weeping mom

Virginia Julien

Tears streamed down the face of Virginia Julien in court on Monday morning as she and her brother Oswald Julien were denied bail for drug charges.

They appeared before Chief Magistrate Evalina Baptiste.

Both defendants are to appear in court on the 12th and 26th of November to answer to the charges of conspiracy to import 165,710 grams of cannabis into Dominica, possession of cannabis and possession with intent to supply.

The cannabis was allegedly found at the home of Virginia Julien on July 11th in Lagoon, Loubiere.

Wayne Norde, attorney for the two accused, requested that they be granted bail on the account that Virgina has small children who have been suffering since her arrest last Wednesday.

However the prosecution objected to bail stating that they were still in search of two suspects in the matter. Inspector Claude Weekes also told the court that although the offences were bailable, the quantity of drugs is worth about $365,000.

Magistrate Baptiste told the accused that she was denying bail to give the police more time to do their work.

    stop all that rejoicing no matter how bad one is but there’s things to be considered for instance t he kids these kids need a mum cause the dad is not there and in this case i am not saying she was right to have drugs in her house but come on with no job or stablelity that may have been the only way to make ends meet so stop rejoicing cause today is hers and tomorrow may be you alls cause there’s a saying if u live in a glass house do no throw stones

    Before i express my opinion on this matter, i first feel the need to share the fact that i am an american (specifically California), and therefore our contrasting societies may have different overrall opinions on this matter. But everyone has their right to their own opinion, and I respect that.

    Regarding this issue, I personally feel that if the charges are indeed true, that the woman has commited a large drug offence in the country of Dominica, and therefore should recieve the penalty.

    But regarding cannabis (ganja) in general, people who smoke it recreationally in dominica seem to assume a very harsh reputation; a stigma that should never come to people who smoke an herb which short and long term effects cant even compare to the negative effects alcohol give people. Sadly, most people dont realize that there has never been one death caused directly by cannabis. But due to prohibition of ganja, criminals naturally take over the sale and trafficking of ganja, and therefore violence potentially insues. Realistically, ganja should be legalized, taxed and regulated in dominica, as has been done in the state of California to help fund education and other expenses. Unfortunately, most of the world is not ready for this reality, as most people have been taught throughout their lives that ganja is a drug, and because it is a drug, it is terrible for ones health. But the reality of the matter is that alcohol and tobacco are both drugs and do kill, while ganja has not killed one person ever. No once. This is fact, and can be backed up by countless sources.

    Ganja smokers like me are not criminals. I have morals, respect for others, and discipline like non ganja smokers.
    The true criminals are the violent offenders, the ones who truely affect the lives of others, not me.

    So what cry that nuh? Now they got caught now her big mouth can’t open? Imagine that eh. She know times hard she shouldve continue going in the garden to harvest produce to sell.times not hard for her they were sweet. So them crocodile tears there didn’t work with the law.

    I was a single mom (dad left and go away never looked back) and was working getting EC$221.23 a fortnight (every 2 weeks) BUT I held on sending my son to school,attended ALL his PTA,made sure I was involved with lots of things he was into.Scolded him and punished him too when the need was there ensured I set example for him, NOW this does not mean he would have followed the example or way of life I tried to expose him too BUT I know I did the right thing. Today he is an adult man and here I am so many years after enjoying the fruits of my patience and labour.I remember his very first bicycle I took it by Courts in May and hide it at a friend’s home to give to him for Christmas in December. And guess what my case was NOT unique thats what we KNEW, thats how we were taught to raise our kids and IF they should decide to go opposite to what seem the right way then we would still be assured we did it the right way,these young people now a days they just looking for quick money and not thinking of the consequences. Her tears should have come earlier.

      @ femmedominique

      There are some mothers as you who are to be commended and I do. Mothers do reap the benefit of their efforts to nurture their children appropriately. Should those children follow their own ways after you have done your best, you are not to be blamed. Mothers as you should console themselves that they have done their best.
      There are some mothers who do not try and who expose their children to evil elements as in the case of this woman. I do think that she needs counseling and guidance. I hope she receives it and for the sake of her children. May God help her.

    I’m condoning selling nor storing marijauna, but I have a major problem with Evalina and her system of justice. How many drug dealers, alleged murder and attempted murder & rape suspects has this woman given bail since from Jan-July 2012? Isn’t this the same woman who took Behanzin to task and allow countless criminals to roam the streets of Dominica till a few met their fate? Didn’t this woman grant 2 men from one from that area bail after they were caught up in COCAINE trafficking even resulting in the death of a few on sea? DNO publish her record then tell me what the hell she can use to justify denying the woman bail. She has a right to bail,with restrictions. A woman sell people birth certificates and helped in passport scam she spent less than 15 minutes in court and was granted bail! To many double standards in that country

    This is what you call “love of vanity”. Some Dominicans trying to live like celebrities. They want Iphone, Mephone, IPad, IDad and unfortunately they are teaching their kids to love these things also. It’s one thing to be hungry and I do feel for the people that are truly in need but again, you have to learn to accept life and utilize the resouces around you. Send your children to school so that they can better themselves in a positive way. Don’t mind you see all the glitz and glamour out there it’s not necessarily what it looks like. Love Dominica, it’s the best place in the world to be.

      Are you the same person who wrote previously? I hope not. If it is you, you have a different tune.
      My comment here is that they are not satisfied with what they have. People must make do with what they have. They get tempted and do not have the money to purchase those new technologies. They can very well do without them. In bygone years we did not have them. Those ipods, etc. cost money. Some people can hardly afford them. Some of it is just show off and to live up to the Joneses. In the meantime they get themselves into trouble and, to their regret, will have to pay the price of their actions.

She committed an offence and is very well guilty. It could also be aiding and abetting and living off the avails of crime, illegal drugs. This is a crime against the State and Nationals.

    people stop using excuse country poor. Isnt Dominica in the world? I agree things are bad and some persons have to grind but to import drugs worth almost $400000 is not too feed children. that is next level drug smuggling.; some of us too greedy. We want to get rich overnight. Bondieu zenyer!!! In the world will always and I repeat always have rich and poor… Dominica has avenue to make things happen but some of us too lazy to use our brains and be creative.
    I have not seen one drug pusher, nor smuggler live in peace and quiet when he retires from his job. Is either they die young, go tojail and fall on roadside like agouti …. that is the payment of blood money. Somebody will pay for it.
    The young lady should have given the upbringing of her children the priority and not encourage her brother to kill people.
    God is giving you a break to think of your actions. You will be forgiven but go to him first.

    Dear admin please note that there is no Lagoon in Loubiere. I believe that the name of the area is LaHaut.

      I thought that Lagoon (if spelt correctly) is in Roseau. I wondered if Loubiere had one that I did not know about.

    My friends children do what they see, say what they hear etc, what example is she to her children, having drugs in the house with the children, see i lucky if she was in another country her children would be taken away from her,

    Why cry now, she should know that being involve in this type of activity, one day she would be caught, the only victim here are the children

    cant you all see there is no source of income in the country, parents now have to turn to the sale of drugs to feed their children. i am not saying that selling drugs is a good practice, but look at our ecomony there are no jobs, we can’t go into some self employment venture because its not financially viable. at the end of the day this lady did what she had to do to get by. there is no job security in this country today your working the next day your not. the government is closing down businesses and privatizing them. the private sector as far as i am concern don’t care about employees, when they realize that employees are in their business for too long and have to pay some pension or gratuity they find some way to send that person home. this place is a complete mess.

      Haitian coming and they finding work to do, why can’t Dominicans find work? Spanish coming and they opening salon, and different legal business also. the problem with some Dominicans is that they are too lazy and like quick money without ever caring of the consequences. I agree jobs are hard to find but the problem is not only in Dominica, it is a world wide problem, people just have to make up their mind to work hard and fend for themselves within the confines of the law. It is a sad situation the lady is in but she should think of the consequences of her action before she went in it. Let this be a learning lesson for her and for others

        Dominicans find work in the US yet Americans say there are no jobs :lol: weak argument re the Haitians.

        The excuse of saying the country is hard so deviant and criminal behaviour is flawed and should not be condoned

      @ hmm

      Prior to making such a statement, you should investigate them and ask how they happened to find themselves in such a situation. Did they not go to primary/elementary school? How did they do in school? Were they school dropouts? What type of life they lived even while they were in school?
      Cease blaming the government and the system in general and place the blame where it belongs. It may also have been that she had irresponsible parents. I reiterate, conduct an investigation into this matter prior to blaming others for their fallen nature, manner of living and criminal activities. I have stated this before, we are all responsible for ourselves, our actions and livelihood. We owe everything to society and not the other way around. Such people contribute nothing to society. They can do nothing that benefits society. They should also not have children for they are incapable of nurturing them appropriately. What type of youths and adults will they become? God help those children.

But they want to press the woman not that she is her action are right and they should not bring her to face justice.People to like a judge people and when they think they a better situation than people.I don’t know I am a working mother and If I ever reach in a situation that I have nothing to give my child to eat and if is drugs I would have to sell for minute to give him food to eat then so be it hell yeah.

        Think it through. You sound vext, angry and all that. You would not want your children to die of hunger. But the drugs you sell will kill somebody’s child or children. It is all right to be angry, but it dangerous to let your anger overwhelm you into making decisions that will land you in jail or in a shooting. So it is all right to be angry. Anger is a natural and good emotion. It is a vent for strong feeling. Use it well…with moderation…to do the job of easing the strong feeling. The let it go. Not for nothing the bible says in Psalm 4, chapter 5: “Be angry, but do not sin.” Peace be with you, my child.

        @ eyeswideshut

        She may have been a disobedient child and as an adult associates with bad company which corrupts. Not married with children. She is young and could very well have some more children out of wedlock. What type of mother is she and will continue to be in the future? Not an exemplary one. There is a price to pay for that.

      • not in that
        July 17, 2012

        @ eyeswideshut what are u talking about she has only 3 children 18, 16 and 4, and she never had no business selling fruits and veggies, her dad has land and they plants grapefruit trees.

        and if you really knew what u were talking about you would know that she is not in any drug business

        she is a very nice woman with a big heart, is just that she has a big loud mouth…..stop talking about things you don’t know about….my girl hold strong..leave everything in prayer and god hands, we know you are innocent and the right set of ppl will be brought to justice.

        Who said so. What type of brother is that who hid it in her home, unknowing to her? What is the size of the house that she was not aware of it? Figure this out. This may be her alibi but is it true.

        @ francillia

        Those of you who stand up for her against the Dominican Law do not think beyond. Who sent her to have children? When last did she go to church and worshipped God? Obviously, God in her life took a back step. This is why she ended up in that situation and with illegitimate children and more to come. God does not protect and stand up for criminals and those who ignore Him. God expects that each and everyone of us will obey the Law of the Land. He will not exonerate us from it and will not make excuses for anyone. If you are a practicing Christian you should be fully aware of that. How much do you know about what is contained in Holy Scriptures?
        Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “I tell you, on the Day of Judgment…, by your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned.”
