Cassandra Jasmine Ebanks pleaded guilty Friday to theft, but to a lesser amount than the CI$100,000 stated in court.

She pleaded not guilty to related charges of forgery and uttering false documents, regarding 35 banks cheques. The offences were allegedly carried out between 1 March 2018 and 13 Nov. 2018.

Ebanks was released on bail on the condition that she not contact the Camana Bay dental practice and that she surrender her passport.

A judge-alone trail was scheduled for 4 Nov.
