Threatening behaviour lands woman in court
A Sandys woman has been given two years probation after chasing another woman with a knife.
Leslie Dill, 25, admitted behaving in a threatening manner and chasing Ms Kendra Rogers while swinging a six-inch knife.
She also admitted saying “I'm going to kill you,” and “I'll stab you in the eyes,” according to prosecutor Victoria Greening.
The incident took place at Bermuda Import and Export in Pembroke on January 16.
Following a social inquiry report and psychological evaluation of Dill, Ms Greening said: “A custodial sentence would not be suitable in this case.
“She does present as a vulnerable young lady and as my learned friend pointed out, she is the primary carer for two children. Although she does have moderate risk of reoffending, it is clear from the psychological report she is willing to engage in court services, and in my opinion that would be more useful to her than any other courses the court can consider.”
Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner sentenced Dill to two years probation, ordering her to stay away from alcohol and drugs, participate in psychological testing, assessment for life skills, and avail herself to Bermuda Assessment and Referral Centre.
