Pembroke woman handed conditional discharge

A Pembroke woman who threw paint over her ex-partner's vehicle has been given a six-month conditional discharge.

At a previous appearance in Magistrates' Court on May 22, Barbara Johnson, 60, pleaded guilty to causing wilful and lawful damage in Devonshire on March 10.

However, she took issue with the cost of the repairs, which amounted to $4,000, and magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo gave prosecutors a week to produce a “more convincing” invoice.

In court today, Mr Tokunbo was presented with another invoice and also spoke to the mechanic, questioning him why all the parts had been replaced.

Johnson also told the court that she had seen the vehicle the next day “and all the paint was gone”, reiterating that she takes exception with the figures.

“I would too,” Mr Tokunbo said. As he handed her a six-month conditional discharge, he added: “The next man that does you wrong, don't do this.”
