A YOUNG woman with disabilities accused of stealing a pair of shoe from her blind friend will appear again at the Honiara Magistrates’ Court on June 6.
The adjournment was made for her to see her lawyer and for her lawyer to appear in court on that day.
This was after she appeared in court on Wednesday without her lawyer.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Shepherd Lapo advised her to see her lawyer and return to the court with her lawyer on the next appearance.
“This is a small case as I have seen from the charge sheet and does not need to take long.
“It only involves a pair of shoe,” Mr Lapo told the accused.
She is likely to enter her plea by then to one count of simple larceny.
Prosecution alleged she stole a pair of shoes on 16 December 2016 from the complainant’s home.
After many phone calls made to the accused to return the shoes failed, the complainant went and reported the matter to the police.
Public Solicitor’s lawyer Jenny Namo represented the accused whilst police prosecutor Able Maelanga is prosecuting.
