Pregnant Policewoman douses lover with acid
A pregnant Policewoman has been charged and placed before the court after she allegedly doused her lover with battery acid when he requested a paternity test.
Cassandra Boucher, 30, of School Street, Albouystown, appeared before Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan and pleaded not guilty to the charge.
It is alleged that on November 7, 2018, at Camp and North Road, Georgetown she unlawfully and maliciously wounded Anthony Paul with intent to maim, disfigure or cause grievous bodily harm.
Her attorney, Adrian Thompson, during his application for bail told the court that his client is pregnant and is the mother of three children.
He explained the Boucher and Paul were in a “turmoil relationship.”
Police Prosecutor, Simone Payne told the court that Boucher and Paul shared an intimate relationship for the past two years. Paul had discovered that the defendant was pregnant and told her that he wanted a DNA test because he caught her cheating.
On the date in question, at about 10:20 hrs Paul received a call from Boucher requesting he take her to the hospital.
A few minutes after Paul arrived at the defendant’s home in a car and she entered the back seat.
However, while at Camp and North Road, Boucher took a bottle from her bag and threw the liquid on Paul. He was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital and was admitted.
Prosecutor Payne opposed bail since the victim is still in a critical condition in the hospital.
The Chief Magistrate released the Policewoman on $300,000 bail with the condition that she reports to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) every Monday and Friday and also lodge her passport at the court.
Boucher was also ordered to keep 50-feet away from Paul and report to court on November 23.
