Alleged child abductor to stand trial in Supreme Court
A woman accused of trying to snatch a seven-year-old boy on December 9, 2019, was committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court yesterday.
De’Edra Gibson, 30, was already on bail for four counts of child stealing, when prosecutors say she attempted to grab her most recent victim.
Gibson, who is on remand at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services, received the prosecution’s case against her when she received a voluntary bill of indictment.
She will be arraigned on a charge of attempted child stealing on March 27.
Gibson is expected to be tried on four counts of child stealing this summer.
Prosecutors say Gibson carried out the spree of kidnappings from February 16 to March 29, 2019.
The boys were lured into a car by a woman, who later dropped them off on the side of the street.
