MIAMI, Florida, USA- After many postponements, former Managing Director of the BVI Ports Authority (BVIPA) Oleanvine Pickering-Maynard was expected to have her sentencing hearing in a Miami courtroom on Thursday, June 6, 2024. Surprisingly; however, the hearing has been pushed back to June 20, 2024.

Pickering-Maynard had pleaded guilty to cocaine conspiracy charges as part of a plea deal with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to testify against former Premier of the Virgin Islands Andrew A. Fahie.

Her son, Kadeem S. Maynard, was sentenced on November 20, 2023, to 57 months in prison for conspiracy to import cocaine into the United States.

It is unclear the reason for the most recent postponement of Pickering-Maynard’s sentencing hearing.

Fahie to be sentenced on June 25, 2024

Meanwhile, Mr Fahie, who is facing a minimum of 10 years imprisonment, will be sentenced on June 25, 2024.

Fahie, 53, was found guilty on February 8, 2024, on charges of drug smuggling, money laundering, and racketeering, after he was arrested at a Miami Airport on April 28, 2022.

      Hold Biden for what? Laundering money, illegal weapons and facilitating the movement of drugs through the territory? Andrew Fahie is a criminal and needs to be incarcerated. Stop encouraging his lawless behavior, he didn’t care when he cashing in. It serves him right. He should spend the rest of his life in prison.

      Are you proposing that the Drew give up his rights to enter any part of the USA including STT, STJ, STX?

        @Why?,,she has a scatter addition for attention and rambles disconnectedly with no flow,,purpose,etc.,Most of the time the rambling is mindlessness without any mindfulness. Some thing is definitely wrong with the young lady perhaps or she is lacking attention , love, etc..

          I believe Ms Varlack is crying out for help and is in desperate need for help. At times one cannot see through her madness via her blogging but i believe she would like the opportunity to come home. However, she doesn't know how to ask for the help or isn't quite ready to ask. Lets pray for the best outcome and be cordial to her at all times. Love and blessing to her as well as both of y'all.

    Ms. Maynard good , for she is getting three hots and a cot and will get credit for time serve. The prosecutor is trying to corroborate her info before sentencing to recommend to the judge how much time to knock off her sentence. It is organize chaos.

      When She and Drew come back, they will look like a smaller version of how they left here. That's a good thing.
