Tannock trial to begin in November

A Southampton woman appeared in Magistrates' Court yesterday charged with managing and having a financial interest in a senior care institution despite being on the Seniors Abuse Register.

Forty-seven year-old Barbara Tannock pleaded not guilty to the offence and will stand trial on November 2 with a mention date on September 13.

Ms Tannock was placed on the Seniors Abuse Register by court order and handed a six month prison sentence in 2012 after pleading guilty to stealing $76,500 from an elderly couple.

She is now accused of contravening the Seniors Abuse Register Act. Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo said that between December 1 and December 31, 2015 “in the islands of Bermuda, being a person whose name appears on the Senior Abuse Register, was concerned in the management of an institution that cares for seniors or had financial interest in the said institution”.

The Act stipulates: “A person whose name appears in the register shall not carry on, or be otherwise concerned in the management of, or have any financial interest in, a home or other institution that cares for seniors.”

She was granted $3,000 bail.
