Theft trial adjourned for two months
The theft trial of a paralegal accused of stealing more than $300,000 in a property sale was adjourned for two months yesterday because she is sick.
Jeleah Turnquest, 34, of Soldier Road, was scheduled to appear before Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain for the start of her stealing by reason of service trial.
However, Turnquest was not there. Her lawyer Bjorn Ferguson explained her absence with the production of a sick note and the matter was adjourned to June 25 and 26.
Three prosecution witnesses were present.
Prosecutors say that Turnquest stole $346,500 from the sale of a condominium.
