Providence teen admits to extortion, framing ex-boyfriend for rape
A 19-year-old Providence, East Bank Demerara woman, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Friday charged with attempting to extort $10 million from her ex-boyfriend and attempting to frame him of rape.
Princess Williams appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly where she pleaded guilty to the charge, which stated that between January 4 – 7, 2021, in Georgetown, with intent to extort $10 million from Kenrick Thomas, she threatened to accuse him of attempting to rape her.
Magistrate Daly remanded Williams to prison and ordered that a probation report is prepared before sentencing. The matter is adjourned to March 1, 2021.
Reports indicate that the two were in a relationship for four months. It is alleged that after their relationship ended, Williams sent Thomas an audio message via social media and accused him of attempting to rape her.
She reportedly told him to pay her $10 million and if not, she will provide the police with the evidence. Thomas, however, made a report to the police instead and Williams was arrested.
