Woman, who received presidential pardon, back in court

Just one year after being pardoned by President David Granger, 26-year-old Tiffany Peters has found herself yet again before the court.

Peters, a former cashier attached to the Magistrates Court, today reappeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for stealing money from the court.

It is alleged that between January 12, 2012 and august 7, 2012, Peters stoke $1.1million from the Magistrate’s Court.

Peters resides at Garden of Eden, and was not required to plea to the charge.

Her attorney, Latchmie Rahamtat, told the court her client indeed was charged for a similar offense and was convicted.

The lawyer argued her client has since opened up her own business as a poultry farmer through the US Embassy’s Skills and Knowledge for Youth Employment (SKYE) programme.

Rahamat said Peters was seeking a police clearance when she visited the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters, and was then told to appear in court on today’s date.

The prosecution did not object to bail being granted and the Chief Magistrate granted the defendant self-bail. Peters is expected to return to court on January 24.

    Double jeopardy ???

      It’s not. Check this: ” Her attorney, Latchmie Rahamtat, told the court her client indeed was charged for a similar offense and was convicted.” Similar, not same.

    Before certain bloggers are ordered to start blaming the president, let it be known that; ” It is alleged that between January 12, 2012 and august 7, 2012, Peters stoke $1.1million from the Magistrate’s Court.” That’s before the pardon.

      How cares what she did before, the point is she a bloody thief, and he “Granger” knew that.
      Birds of a feather flock together…. Go figure.

    From where I sit the president may have to stop playing the nice guy role because this is not the first time it has flared up in his face. If he must pardon people then he should pardon people who have only been before the court for one minor offence and who the police certify that they know nothing against, apart from that offence. Some people are well known to the police by virtue of where,when and with whom they are seen, even though they may never have been arrested. Mr Granger needs to ensure that greater caution is exercised by those responsible for selecting people for pardon.

    Its not double jeopardy, pal. Cases are only similar.
    “Her attorney, Latchmie Rahamtat, told the court her client indeed was charged for a similar offense and was convicted.

    She was pardoned for one offence now it has been discovered that there may have been an earlier offence. I am saying that these pardons should not be based only on prison or court records.If the police had been asked if they were comfortable with this proposed pardon they would have done checks, then raised a red flag and it would not have been given. The bottom line is that the woman is a possible repeat offender. Not the best candidate for a pardon.
