Woman claims she stole phone when man failed to pay for sex


Arnos Vale resident Madonna Jack said a man failed to honour his financial commitment after they had sex, so she stole his cellular phone.

Jack appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to stealing a cellular phone and its case from Kenroy Robinson of Green Hill, valued at US$510,{{more}} on July 14, 2014, at Heritage Square.

In his testimony, Robinson, who operates a bar at Heritage Square, told the court he was at the bar when Jack, who frequents his business, came there.

He said she and the bartender were there when he left for a short while and returned, only to discover that his phone was not where he had left it.

The matter was reported to the police and investigations led to Jack’s arrest.

Jack, who was unrepresented, had initially pleaded not guilty to the charge.

During her cross-examination of Robinson, Jack told the court she was changing her plea to guilty, because she felt bad about what had happened.

She claimed Robinson had agreed to pay for a sexual encounter she alleged they had, but he did not honour his commitment and that was the reason she committed the act.

Magistrate Carla James placed Jack on a six-month bond in the sum of $1,500.

In breach of that bond, Jack will spend three months in jail.(KW)
