A woman who assaulted her look-alike with pepper spray was found guilty of harm on Tuesday and remanded to the Belize Central Prison for two nights, to reflect upon her actions.
At her sentencing on Thursday afternoon, Senior Magistrate, Sharon Fraser asked convicted prisoner, Patrice Ramsey if she learned any lessons whilst behind bars.
In her view, Ramsey showed no remorse for her action and was sent back to prison for further reflection.
Ramsey faces a possible three years in jail for harm.
On July 12, 2014, Ramsey pepper sprayed Niketa Usher, 24, a Boutique Owner of corner Dean and Plues Street in Belize City.
The attack occurred at the BTL Park just after the women left the Pier 1 night club.
Usher testified she, her two friends and sister went to get food around 2:00 a.m. that day. They were walking back to the park when she heard one of Ramsey’s friends say, “See yoh look alike deh.”
Ramsey then began an exchange of words. According to Usher, she was on the ground shortly after and felt a burning sensation on her face.
Usher endured further verbal assaults but began to scream because she could not see anything.
Persons at the park came to her aid. In her defense, Ramsey denied ever attacking Usher, but the Magistrate was not convinced.
Sentencing is reserved for Tuesday, July 21st.
