Jamaica: Appeal Court Rules Driver Should Serve Prison Time For Death Of Blind Women

Ann Marie Williams, the driver of a motorcar that killed two visually-impaired women after it ploughed into a crowded bus stop in 2011, has been taken into custody to begin serving her prison sentence.

This comes after the Court of Appeal today dismissed a challenge to her conviction and sentence for causing death by dangerous driving.

“There is a lot a bawling,” a police source revealed.

In 2015, Williams was convicted by a seven-member jury and was later ordered to serve one year in prison at hard labour on each count.

High Court judge David Fraser, who presided over the case, ordered that the sentences be served at the same time. She was also disqualified from holding a driver’s licence for two years.
