Kezi Doughty appeal: Court wants probation report

By Innis Francis innis.francis@trinidadexpress.com

THE Appeal Court on Thursday ordered a probation officer’s report be done on mother of 11 Kezi Doughty, before making a ruling in her appeal against the prison sentence imposed two years ago, for abandoning five of her children.

Doughty was represented by attorney Peter Taylor who argued the appeal before Justices Paula-Mae Weekes and Alice Yorke Soo-Hon in the San Fernando Supreme Court.

Doughty was jailed for five months, but released on bail shortly after going to prison. She was pregnant with twin girls at the time.

Taylor asked that the children Doughty is accused of abandoning, who are in State care in south Trinidad, be moved to a place closer to where Doughty has found refuge, in Curepe.

Justice Weekes said the matter will transferred to Port of Spain and as a matter of urgency a probation officer’s report be done by July 11.
The matter was set for July 22 in the Hall of Justice.
