‘Sweet woman’ begs court to discontinue matter

Kaieteur News: "The woman who allegedly abducted an 18-year-old female on Friday, at the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company walked out of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, as a free woman since the teen refused to give evidence against her.
Odella Patterson was yesterday not required to plead to the indictable offence of abduction when she appeared before Magistrate Priya Beharry.
It was alleged that Patterson, on Thursday, abducted Taneisha Fernandes and kept her against her will."
