Woman hides her stash near her unmentionables

Shanine Rhaburn

Corporal punishment is also not allowed in our justice system, but either a fine or prison time would suffice for minor infractions. A woman in Belize City narrowly escaped getting on the prison bus for a small amount of marijuana she had stashed in her underwear. Police say that on Sunday twenty year old Shanine Rhaburn was observed acting suspiciously near her home on West Collet Canal and she was detained. At the Queen Street Police Station, Rhaburn was questioned by a woman police constable and that’s when she handed over two point three grams of cannabis which she had hidden in her underwear.  In court Rhaburn pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of a controlled drug, but when it came to sentencing there was a tense moment when Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazier was angered by the attitude of Rhaburn. The young woman quickly saw the error of her ways and apologized for her behavior, and Senior Magistrate Frazer relented and imposed a fine of two hundred and fifty dollars which is to be paid by the end of July. If Rhaburn does not pay the fine, she will serve three months in prison.
