ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – This morning December 5, 2014 as was scheduled Irene Penn O’Neal, 55, Zubida O’Neal, 21 and Cordell O’Neal, 29 were all present at the Magistrate’s Court to answer charges of unlawful possession of firearms. However they never made it into the court room.

This news site was made to understand by reliable sources that the matters against the three which are to be answered to in the Magistrate’s Court will not take place before the New Year.

The firearms were allegedly found in the family’s home in Pockwood Pond on October 24, 2014 during a Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) operation.

The trio were in the court compound for an extended period as their attorney Mrs. Valerie Stephens-Gordon was addressing other cases in the court. However after dealing with a matter the attorney informed the presiding Magistrate Ayana Baptiste DaBreo that she was part of a training programme and needed to leave court early.

Subsequently the O’Neal family was seen leaving the court compound and upon inquiry this news site was informed that the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) was not ready with the charges for court and as such a new date was set.

Inquiries have been made for information on the said date change from the RVIPF Public Relations Department but a response has not been given up to press time.

    You all need to leave the d**m woman alone. In addition to this, if u live in a glass house u need to stop from throwing stones. Always remember that children don't stay small all of the time. Be careful of what u wish for other people lest it turn right back on you.

    the thought that the NDP would use this on the campaign is unthinkable.

    Blame everything on the Governments just as you were doing over the last 15 - 20 years. We have parents whose children are going astray turning to drugs and guns and yet we continue to shelter them because the parents are Attorneys, Ceo of some big company, Pastors and Politician. I applaud the police for recovering these firearms and taking them off the streets. STOP HARVESTING CRIMINALS AND REWARDING BAD BEHAVIOR.
