UPDATE: Webster Edmund faces ten charges, remanded in custody

Edmund

Webster Edmund of Layou has been remanded in police custody in connection with the Shanice Jemmot matter when he appeared in court Friday.

He is facing ten counts of criminal offense.

Edmund is believed to have held Jemmot 15, hostage for 40 days. Edmund, who had also disappeared during that time, was discovered by police in the Hillsborough Estate area Monday. The police reported that he led them to Jemmot.

The charges brought against Edmund include possession of firearm to endanger life, kidnapping, unlawful possession of firearm and ammunition, possession of marijuana and possession of the said drug with intent to supply. He pleaded guilty only to the drug charges.

The first round of investigation into some of the matters concerning Jemmot’s disappearance will be heard in the St. Joseph court on April 4, 2011.

    Hmmm Dominicans can beat each other up eh! Anyways, I glad Shanice home but let me just say, something not right. Alot of you made alot of valid points here. These 2 were allegedly in a relationship (or something like it) for a number of years. She’s like alot of our young ladies in D/a right now: liking nice things that parents don’t want to, or can’t, provide. She was allegedly exposed to that lifestyle because of her mother, who liked to get nice things from men. This is part of the reason she no longer resided with her mother, but stayed with her granny instead. Not having father around much can also lead a young lady to desire an older man, thinking he can give her all the affection shes missing. This is all from a very reliable source close to he investigation, however, I still say its all alleged because I did not hear it from either horse’s mouth. My assumption is that Shanice went with her ‘boo’ willingly & something went terribly wrong. Who knows, she was probably complaining to him about home life & he made plans for them. Put yourself in her shoes & think about it. My husband is 13yrs my senior & if I was Shanice’s age with a man 13yrs older, I wouldve been making plans to get away if I thought life would be sweeter with him. God be with both of them!

      Oh my God, U should shut up, u do not know crap. Shanice and her mother and grandmother along with her younger siblings all reside in the same house. STOP REPEATING WHAT YOU HEAR OTHERS SAY, and stop assuming as well. U do not know s**t about Shanice home life. Are you people serious?

      but whether she was willing or not, that is already rape. she was a minor and we all shouldknow our laws by now. her mind is still young and cant blame her for anything. he as a grwon man should know better. and that is taking advantage of a minor.

    i understand the anger everyone feels, but there are two sides to a story and there is so much more to this incident than anyone will ever begin to understand. people have every right to be angry, mad, upset or however you want to put it, but in the same breath we have to uncover every stone in this sensitive matter, the police need to investigate this matter thoroughly and treat everyone like a suspect!

  7. Thanking God
    April 3, 2011

    I feel sorry for this young lady and what she went through..I’m not gonna judge her in any way because I cannot even begin to understand how she feels. Right now as a people whe should stand up for her and support. When we begin to see her on the streets we should not put her down in any way but encourage her to continue living her life, and just show her some love and support..

    It doesnt make sense bring down her parents because those are the people who have to help her through and it doesnt make sense to slander the police because they got her. We do not honestly know how hard they worked..

    It is going to be a tough road for her. Dominicans cannot comprehend such a situation. It is so unexpected here, i guess that is why she was admitted to the ward. It is probably hard for professionals here to deal with since it is uncommon in Dominica. And why should the police release information on her now? Whatever she says at the PMH right now is her business and her family.. Lets wake up people, and stop being so ignorant and arrogant.

    Lets stand up for each other

    If we have so much to say. I think it would have been much better to come together and search the bushes nearby thoroughly. The police need that kind of help,not ridicule,there are some good men out there who wish well and would want to do better but their hands are tied by the corrupted system. People,please remember that we need the police to maintain the law,they have power that we as citizens do not have,let us pray for them and help them when we can,they are not all the same. This is the lent season for those of us who are Catholics,there is a GOD,40 days and 40 night,does that ring a bell? Keep the faith.

    There are so many other victims and offenders out there but the system pays no mind to it. For example, when parents, villagers and even more importantly teachers know that there are children being abuse by elders in their school and nothing is done about it,it is extremely disturbing. When Welfare or whoever is the one making the decision to allow kids to live with so call foster parents that are of no good example, what do you expect?
    We need to address this matter at the root. Have the right people educate council and question all the kids periodically. I guarantee you if you go to any school now and interogate throughly the results would be alarming. A data base should be kept for all sex offenders. Stiffer punishment should be given.

      Shanice is under observation, no doubt, physically and mentally. Keep in mind after her trauma of living under abnormal conditions and a scary one at that she needs all the relevant which is available. Obviously someone in authority is present with her. In time she will be sent home.

  20. Wrong Info.
    April 2, 2011

    The matter’s on 4.4.11 at St. Joseph is not the first round in investigations in relation to Shanice’s disappearance. Maybe if DNO was present and listening at the court, then they would have heard that the matter on 4.4.11 is a separate matter. The matter where Shanice is involved comes at a much later date. You could always call court section for details before wrong information is given. I see these mistakes too often on DNO.

    I can only imagine what this poor child went through…….have you guys even thought about how many times she was probably used as his sexual slave? Think of the end result of that…..std’s, pregnancy etc etc….Lord I do not even want to think about it! Help this little girl!!!!

    April 2, 2011

    the man needs a phyco evaluation and that cannot be argued. it’s obvious a right thinking man with a level head on his shoulders, supported by a neck, would not do such a thing. also to say this can only happen in Dominica is a false statement. people read the international news and familiarize yourself with what is happening out there.These things happen all the time, and it is quite pleasing to say, very uncommon in Dominica.
    Also, be reminded that there are two sides to any story, The parents of this teen need to take some responsibility for what happen to thier child and should be questioned to the 3rd degree instead of being treated as the victim here. again the man deserves his day in court and im sure justice will prevail. It’s also very sad that children are the ones who will pay for parents sins, but that we cannot do anything about since the bible speaks about it

I would be on him like a leech, I would not at any time accept his gifts, my allegiance would be to my darn children, ensuring that they are safe. So they can have every opportunity to succeed at school. Edmund didnt hurt that child, Her mother failed her!!!!

    anyway this case is just water under the bridge now . … . once the cops come with all those charges they’re on shaky ground:

    Weeks speak the truth IS the girl cooperating? WHY HASN’T SHE BEEN RELEASED? Are you guys trying to force a statement out of her? Why the psychiatric detention? the newspapers and Marpin should be showing photos of her lovingly reunited with her family after a physical check-up.

    According to RELIABLE reports Webbie not only gave accurate information about her whereabouts BUT ALSO LED the cops to her location THE $35000.00 IS HIS (ma Dyer take note)

      @ ONE LOVE

      How about informing those men to leave the young girls alone? Do you think the young girls or all of them go after the men?
      I do think that if a man approaches an underaged girl she should know to ward off his approach and inform her parent(s) about him.
      Men who go after young girls – underag ones – are pedophiles. They are brain-sick; not mentally sick in that he allowed his evil action to govern him. This man knew exactly what he was doing and deserves the full arm of the Dominican Law.

      • WTF?
        April 5, 2011

        In a perfect world, all men would be informed to leave young girls alone and it would be so. Unfortunately parents can only control their children, so yes, it becomes the parent’s responsibility to ensure that their daughters have a solid foundation at home in order to deal with situations like these, which are very likely to arise in this pedophile-filled world.

    I think this situation also brings to the forefront a serious issue in Dominica. Our fathers do not take an active part in their children’s lives and therfore open them up to these situation. I have never heard any mention of her fater nor has he said anything during this ordeal.

    Dominican men need to stand up and be fathers to their childre. Love them, protect them, provide for them, guide and protect them. By so doing, you will help to shield them from these situations and provide a solid foundation on which they are able to build their lives.

    I think Shanice’s father appears to be one of the typical sperm donors in Dominica who leave their children to be brought up by single mums, who many times are the sole providers, nurturers, disciplinarians who play both roles. It is to difficult a role.

    Fathers step up and take care of your children in order to protect them from scums like Edmund

    you all love saying how kidsdon’t take correction…the bible says that foolishness is in the heart of a child. so it is up to th older ones with widom and expericne to do thier job properly. and if they do their job properly kids will listen to then. stop treating them like they supposed to be perfect. accept the fact that they who are much younger and inexperience make mistakes too. guide them, have a reltionship with them bvecause you cannot correct someone you do not have a relationship with. if you are a parent and you do not have a loving relationship with your child, tell me why should they listen to you. it’s like a stranger trying to give them correcdtion. so instead of brining down these kids, look at the adult and see what they are doing wrong

      So tell me “horse dung” while the Dominican police force was laboring for 40 days where were you? how come you was not out and about doing some private investigation? how come you did not crack the case? how come you did not find Shanice in the blink of an eye? did you even volunteer your highly competent search and rescue services anytime during this national ordeal?

      Typical “bata kalinago”, confused, neither here nor there. a powerful critic but would not know where to start if placed under the same circumstances.

      • 40 days???
        April 1, 2011

        I have to say i agree with “bata kalinago”… Dominica is NOT that big that it takes 40 days to capture a child kidnapper/Pediphyle what eva they call him or want to charge him with. after all they kept alot of info from the public which could have been vital in her aid and rescue. the only things they can get done quickly is to beat ppl up and raid for drugs…growing up i so wanted to be a member of teh dominca police force and now i dont regret not pursuing this..COME ON DOMINICA POLICE FORCE…!!!

        True say Kwayib. If the Police was not doing their job and they took 40 days to find them… How comes you di dnot do this in one (1) day since you Bata Kalinago had all the answers .. all the know how’s … Where were you all that 40 days??

      • me too
        April 1, 2011

        I have to agree with bata kalinago. Kwayib if DNO and the Police were really listening to some of the viewers the child would have been within the first few weeks. Some of us posted some valuable search options on DNO and if they were exercised it would not have taken 40 days. Speaking on behalf of some people I know, if we were in Dominica we would have had our own search parties. DNO and the Police held valuable information from the public. DNO posted the comments it felt like posting.

      • oh oh
        April 2, 2011

        some of u guys really amaze me. you’re saying thank you for rescuing the little girl but you took too long to find her? Is there a time limitation to find a criminal that would be considired the right time written in stone?

        sometimes we hide something in our own house and we look for it for months even years and we can’t find it…police cant use super powers to locate criminals…they need assistance…who saw? who heard?…some may try to mislead the police thereby hindering their job hence a delay in apprehending the perps.

        cooperation with the police from the pubic is essential and will speed up the process while wrong information could however slow down the process

        maybe information came slowly to the police…people come on…don’t be like that

    does shanice have a father? there is no mention so him so far.

    men please communicate with your daughters. spent quality time with them. show them what love is. from the comments i have read befoer it seems like this girl was in a relationship wit this guy. was she looking for a father figure?
    rise up and do your job men. speak to your daughters about wht they should look for in the opposite sex. don’t just command them about who they should speak too. they will lnot listen if you just command them and try to control their life but have long civilized conversations with your daughers and they will listen and obey.

    Doh get me wrong eh, I’m not an Edmund fan. But how DNO know the girl was held “hostage”? Sources who know the family are saying that the girl willingly left with the guy. Now that doesn’t give him the right because she is under age. But at the same time, some of these children think they big before their time, and don’t like to take correction and good advise. If you think I lying, wait outside the school gate of CHS,WHS,DGS,SMA, etc, at 1pm and just little to the conversation 1st formers having, and then come back and tell me.

    Admin: didn’t you read the story? It said, “Edmund is BELIEVED to have held Jemmot 15, hostage for 40 days.” (Caps for emphasis). The operative word here is “believe.” Read carefully before commenting.

      Hello She was under the age of consent is does not matter if she beg him to take her away with him; he still wrong. Is time Dominican men obey the law and ask them girls for their birth paper and wait…..stupes stop destroying young lives… Edmund is good ting you living in DA and not Libya cause right now you would be infront a firing squad get 40 hot pepper bullets not to kill you right away but to make you suffer.
      And if she had a relationship with Edmund why he did not buy some change of clothes for the young lady, treat her good;

      Government need to tighten on the law for them people that going behind them young girls and also increase the age of consent…. Make an example out of Edmund cause it have plenty more Edmund’s in our society

          A child is a child, is a child! Period! she cannot make a decision to voluntarily abscond with a big man. He is the adult in the situation and should not have even entertained the idea “if” she was the one who presented it. Why do we always try blaming the children? Children will always be children and they will always make inappropriate decisions for whatever reasons. While I agree he is still innocent under the law, I pray and hope he will receive the maximum punishment allowable under the law for every one of the charges he is found guilty of. Only then justice will be served.

ITS JUST AS WRONG!!! i am from the area and i am telling you… it was happening long before.
          when it came out in the light.. (********) acting crazy?? oh no. this poor girl was forced to grow up before her time. it was totally unfair to her fom the get go. so we must face reality that in our blessed country mothers are using thier kids for personal gain. sad as it may be we need not be biased and blame one party.

      @ kk

      God goodness sake, they are not judging him per se. Do not put you hand in fire for that man. They are judging what he did, being interested in a 14 year-old child. He may have taken her away against her will as she was walking to school. He was found with a gun and drugs. He held her captive for 40 days.
      Was he not supposed to appear in Court and she was supposed to be a witness as I read? Correct me if I erred or read the information incorrectly. He is downright guilty.
      I recall reading in Holy Scriptures that Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “I judge by what I see.” He did not state that he is judging or condemning anyone for He said that He did not come to condemn the world but to save the world. Note what He said. I reiterate: “I judge by what I see.” This is what we judge by what we see and read, peoples actions and words. Know the difference.

Yes we shouldn’t judge but, we are humans what do u expect. We are angry at what he did, and yes when we are angry we spit out angry words. If you were the parent of that child what would you do? or rather yet say? I think you would be the first person to want him dead.

        Did Mr Edmund commit a horrible crime or not? Listen weather it be you, me or our children that commit a crime, that person should pay. I take it you are a Christian and so I am. I know we all have problems and are not perfect but if anyone, including me commits such a crime – that person should pay for his crime….
        Now I know you talk about mercy and love…. But do you believe that sinners will go to hell if they don’t repent? My point is you sow what you reap… and if this guy is found guilty he should spend the maximum amount of time in jail. Yes he can repent and Jesus will save him, yet still he still needs to pay for his crime!!! Simple!!!!

Think about it, no one will kidnap a young girl just for style, wha, he like to see her or something? We all know what went down and he must pay. What if he was never caught, he would probably kill that child. I do not care what kind of parents she have, or what type of person she was, Nooooooooooooo one deserve this. WTF.

Now before you step out you have to lock your door, even if you are home your doors are closed, you can’t trust to leave your children with family members.You are inside your house and people rubbing you at gun point. People don’t respect people anymore. What is this??? Someone need to make an example. Dominica should not have gotten this bad.
