$100K Bail Granted for Alleged Child Abuser. Child Remains Hospitalized.

$100,000 bail has been granted to the woman accused of beating a two-year -old child and rupturing her colon.

39 year old Roxanne Oliver yesterday appeared before Magistrate Aden Stroude in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court charged with causing grievous bodily harm to the child during an incident at her home on August 12.

The woman is a registered nurse.

As part of the conditions of her bail, Magistrate Stroude ordered that Oliver refrain from coming within 100 feet of the victim until her case is determined.

She was the girlfriend of the child’s father.

The child underwent emergency surgery two Fridays ago as doctors repaired the damage to her colon and to part of her bowel that was found to have gangrene. The child remained warded in the Wendy Fitzwilliam

Paediatric Hospital in Mt Hope up to late yesterday.
