Judith Francia Douglas, 52, appeared in Summary Court on Friday charged with two counts of obtaining property by deception.

One charge alleges that she obtained $2,300 from a man between Jan. 2 and Feb. 15 this year with the intention of permanently depriving him of that amount.

A police press release issued earlier that day indicated that the defendant, a George Town resident, reportedly accepted payments for items which she then refused to turn over.

The second charge alleges that she obtained $1,500 from a woman on or before Nov. 16, 2017, under similar circumstances.

Defense attorney Lee Halliday-Davis did not apply for bail. She said she first needed to see the papers in the case. Crown counsel Scott Wainwright indicated the papers would be forthcoming in time for the next mention.

Magistrate Grace Donalds set the matter for Thursday, July 6, and remanded the defendant in custody until then.
