Jamaica: Hanover Woman Fined $50,000 For Stealing Electricity From Courthouse

A Hanover woman has been fined $50,000 or 9 months imprisonment for stealing electricity from the Lucea Parish Court building.

Karen Henry, 45, pleaded guilty to abstracting electricity on Tuesday and was admonished by parish judge Sheron Barnes.

The court was told that on March 21 a supervisor at the courthouse detected electrical issues in the building and called in the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS).

During checks, a wire covered by bushes leading to a house in Haughton Court, a community behind the courthouse, was detected.
