Woman charged for cruelty to her child, granted bail

A young woman Vincia Caloire who was on January 1, 2013 arrested by the Woodford Hill police for “cruelty to a minor” has been granted bail in the same of EC$10,000.00 by a Roseau magistrate after she pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The matter is set for May, 31, 2013 in Wesley. Her father Vincent Caloire stood as surety and she is represented by attorney Darius Jones.

In other court news, Njackie Thomas, who a few weeks ago, was arrested by police for 7,000 grams of cocaine is expected to be granted bail soon. Thomas reappeared on Thursday before magistrate Candia-Carette George who reviewed his bail application and told the accused that “your bail is now open”.

However, Thomas now needs to find some suitable sureties before he can secure his release. He has been on remand at the State’s prison since his arrest.

Meantime, four other men including a national of Columbia who were arrested for possession of 154 pounds of cocaine and slapped with several charges by the customs, were again denied bail after the prosecution led by inspector Claude Weekes, objected once more to bail.

The men and Njackie Thomas are represented by attorney at law Wayne Norde.

    For those of us who did not witness the alleged, “cruelty to a minor”, it’s very difficult to cast judgement for or against her. By the report, all we know is that the woman was arrested, charged and granted bail. With respect to the other stories, I think the judicial system in Dominica needs to review its policy on Bail. By the looks of things, it’s easier to be granted bail for a violet crime (including murder) than any lesser charge!

        Not after the behavior they got even on Facebook they cussing each other about who was in the bus stop and who was with which man cause he came from oversea and that was occuring between a grown mother and a 15 year old, she shouls be the one helping and correcting the young child not insulting her

    I know that mother and I think it was about time that she was arrested and charged. I hope that a good sentence is handed down to her she too wicked. I hope welfare take the children. Am a mother and I don’t think under no situation should children be treated like that. You can afford to take care of them, they fustrating you yhere is something call birthcontrol use it and stop abusing innocent children. And everything she laughing I hope she was laughing when she was in the cells. To the nursing in d uk I share your concerns but that mother was mentally distrubed Vinica is not mentally distrubed she just down care dam according to old ppl. I know I nursed her on several times. Your baby have FFT and you still refusing to feed baby. Jail for you girl. God gonna burn you for that.

        True we are very quick judge -we don’t know her situation or how she was treated as a child.

      Nurse, I’m confused by your statement: “they fustrating you yhere is something call birthcontrol use it and stop abusing innocent children” I want to know how birth control can stop child abuse. 8-O

    People seem to spend more time worrying about people been caught with guns in there suitcases and look at this -this poor little person did and does not deserve to be treated like this -where are all the politicians and ex politicians now what about the protection of minors I hope this little persons finds someone to love and protect him/her.

    So if I was not interested in that cruelty to child story, I would not have found out that Njackie Thomas, who a few weeks ago, was arrested by police for 7,000 grams of cocaine.

    So that chick fr mahaut/delices/canada walked free n dis woman may face prison sentence for cruelty of a minor? Dominica DOminica why is de so unfair. De penalty for one should b de same for d other. So unfair in everything is our lovely Dominica

      I agree….I guess murder in Dominica is just like slapping someone and getting away with it

    • imagine that.
      January 4, 2013

      I couldn’t agree more. I am not in favour of cruelty to a child however there are times when there is a need for spanking. But really, what Sara Lyn did to her kids is beyond comparison to this but she is free like a bird. So unfair.

    • Peeping Tom

      How can the penalty for one be the same for the other when, from all reports, the two cases are dissimilar? One was considered ill: The incident occurred as a result of her illness. This is not the case with Vincia, according to the court.

        Whats the case? Enlighten people nor! We need to know. Inquiring minds need to know.

      The Delices woman was diagnosed with postpartum depression. What defense do you have for Vincia? You might need a diagnosis come to my office.

      • who knows?
        January 4, 2013

        This one might get away by saying that she suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after so many fights with her lover, the stress and anxiety is taking a toll on her mental health right?

      You can always visit the welfare department if you so want to raise a child. Or Chance in Belfast…there are a number of children waiting for you patiently.

    No confidence or hope in that justice system.Know of a young man in Pichelin who was invited to the Garraway hotel by a worker there,the most decent young man you will meet ,never been in trouble with the law,yet he was caught and sent to a Month in Prison and charged,for being at the wrong place at the wrong time ,yet all this major crimes against children and society are dealt with much leniency,its a shame.
