She later appeared before Justice of the Peace Sandra Soogrim Ramsaran in the San Fernando Magistrates Court and charged with wasteful employment of police time in that she made a false report that she was kidnapped.

She was charged by PC Trevor Rampersad and represented by attorney Subhas Panday.
