A 44-year-old mother who at one time was addicted to cocaine, is now free of it.
Lisa St John returned to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court and greeted Magistrate Douglas Frederick with these words “I am ready to go with my family. They are going to look after me. They are even going to get me a job. I don’t need rehab anymore.”
When St John first appeared before Magistrate Frederick last December, he had sent her to the Psychiatric Hospital for an assessment after she pleaded guilty to the unlawful possession of cocaine and apparatus on December 20, 2018.
Vowing to keep out of drug holes, St John told the court, “That part of my life is behind. I am starting afresh.”
Her family, including two of her four children and a sister told the court that they were willing to help her.
Magistrate Frederick then placed her on a bond to keep the peace for six months and if breached, she will spend six months in jail.
