Mom on charge of "obscene exposure"

...granted $200,000 own bond

By Nikita Braxton-Benjamin

A MOTHER of three charged with obscenely exposing herself,
pleaded not guilty to the charge yesterday.

Shamela Gokool, 46, appeared before San Fernando Magistrate Annette Mc Kenzie who read the charges that she wilfully and obscenely exposed her person, assaulted and resisted a police officer in the execution of his duty, and also used obscene
language to the annoyance of people.

She was arrested on Sunday at Esperance Village, near San Fernando.

Defence attorney Ainsley Lucky said that his client had no previous or pending matters before the court. He said, Gokool, a married mother of three adult children, worked as a cleaner with the construction firm involved in the building of the San Fernando to Point Fortin Highway, and lived with her father.

Lucky asked that Gokool be allowed her own bail. Police prosecutor Sgt Veano Ragoo made not objection. Mc Kenzie placed her on $200,000 own bail to cover all the charges. Gokool is to reappear in court on April 7.
