Pregnant mom of nine may be out on bail soon
Kezi Doughty, the mother of nine who is pregrant with twins and who was given a five-month sentence for wilfully abandoning her children, is expected to be out on bail early next week.
Yesterday founder of the Christian-based Eternal Light Community, Deborah De Rosia, stood as surety for Doughty's $50,000 bail. Peter Taylor and Pennelope Beckles had on Monday filed an affidavit in support of the bail application which was heard yesterday. The application was to have someone stand as surety for the bail was made before Justice Maria Wilson in the High Court.
Taylor said because the paperwork has to be done, Doughty would not be freed until next week.
He said Doughty would be housed at one of the Eternal Light homes.
Doughty 33, of King's Wharf, San Fernando, had been convicted last month of wilfully abandoning her children to cause injury to their health and was ordered to pay $3,000 before March 30, 2013 and to serve five months in jail. Failure to pay the sum would result in a further three months behind bars.
