Pregnant woman facing embezzlement charge granted bail


A pregnant woman found herself before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday to answer to a charge of embezzlement.

Latoya Lovell, 29, of Georgetown denied the allegation when it was read to her.

Magistrate Leron Daly read the charge which alleged that between June 9, 2017 and September 16, 2017, at Georgetown she fraudulently embezzled $2.3M taken into possession by her in the name of Stephen Electrical Agency.

The facts of the matter were not read to the Court, however, the representing Attorney for the accused asked that bail be granted due to the fact that she is currently seven months pregnant.

However, the Police Prosecutor objected to this based on the amount of money embezzled.

Bail was granted to the accused in the sum of $100,000 and Lovell is expected to return to Court on November 10, 2017, for reports.
