(CNS): In an eleventh hour plea, Judith Douglas (55), who was charged with a Caymanian status fraud to the tune of almost $1.9 million, has finally admitted her crime. She was due to face a retrial next Tuesday but pleaded guilty today (Wednesday) to one count of obtaining property by deception. Douglas was convicted of the massive scam in the summer of 2019 but her conviction was overturned by the Court of Appeal in October as a result of the behaviour of the trial judge.

Douglas was set to face the crown’s case again next week, accused of deceiving Nathanial Robb, a US national living here who was the foreign partner in a watersports business. Robb parted with the cash over a four year period between 2010 and 2016, believing the money was to help him secure permanent residency, Caymanian status and a passport.

Douglas has always denied the scam, claiming that while she took the money from Robb, she was merely a courier who was being instructed by a third party who was a senior partner in government. In a hard to follow defence, Douglas claimed that this mystery man and Robb were in some kind of circular scam that had involved Robb conning his own business partners in which she was being used.

Despite pleading guilty to taking the money from Robb, Douglas still claimed that she was paid only a tiny percentage of the cash, somewhere in the region of $15,000, and that the bulk of the money went to this mystery individual.

Douglas has been remanded in custody to HMP Fairbanks, where she has already served more than two and a half years while the case has wound its way through the court. Originally sentenced to ten years, she will be re-sentenced on 12 February.

    Douglas is a con-woman and the minute she gets out of Fairbanks she will do it again. I believe she got ever dime he said, did you see where she lived. Her little house had about 20 cameras around it and the inside was decorated better than Opera house. She sold most of the stuff and the Police never even seized anything to sell and return this man a fraction of what he lost.
    I hope she spends the rest of her life in Prison. (You are THIEF talking about third party)

    CNS: I don’t know where you got the story from but you seem to have lifted the whole thing without credit. Here is our story:

    A George Town woman began serving a four and a half year jail term in HMP Fairbanks on Tuesday after Justice Charles Quin delivered his sentencing judgment on her involvement in a permanent residency scam. Marcia Hamilton was convicted in December of six counts of obtaining property by deception for her part in an organised con over the sale of residency rights involving at least two other women. Her co-accused, Judith Hamilton, who pleaded guilty last September to nine counts for the same scam, received just two and a half years. Read more here

    Anyone thinking status grants are revocable really needs to get to grips with the European Convention of Human Rights which practically makes any technical right of revocation all but impossible.

  5. Say it like it is says:

    Some thoughts – what action was taken against the judge in the first trial, the judge’s misbehaviour has caused immense problems not to mention a lengthy delay in administering justice.
    What efforts have been made to trace the $1.9 million, maybe UK precedent should be followed and if Douglas doesn’t own up to where it went then she should receive a much longer sentence.

    How could Nat Robb think it was a good idea to give her so much cash though? C’mon Nat…

    Are the Douglas brothers who have been sent to the UK to serve out their murder sentences any relation to her?

        You’ll find those who have not ventured to live elsewhere for five generations here consider themselves “indigenous” whereas in most places in the world fifth generation folks are seen as “the new family in town.”
        No one was colonized here. There are no indigenous Caymanians. We all are or come from colonizers (who had the gumption to seek out and work towards a better place).

      She was, and still is, a Caymanian – and before it’s suggested, NOT a 2003 Grant recipient. Check the list:

      I’ve travelled quite a bit, and this is the only place I’ve ever encountered that has degrees of citizenship.

      In the eyes of the law, a person who obtains Caymanian Status IS Caymanian. It’s only in the eyes of the people that things apparently get strange.

      • Anonymous says:

        Totally true. But our law says if you abuse the grant, it can and should be revoked.

      • Say it like it is says:

        Beaumont thank you for yet another expression of fact and common sense.If any of your fellow Caymanians who have obtained full British citizenship via an irrevocable
        passport ever move to the UK, I do not see them being referred to as “paper Brit’s”, or “driftwood”.If they do well, I do see them having the opportunity of being elected as an MP, or even a Govt Minister, the precedents are numerous and Cayman could learn from them.

          And likewise, to call those who brag of being born in the US (automatic citizenship with out having done a thing) of Caymanian parents (and are illegally not filing with the IRS every year) “paper Americans” or some other slight would be considered a very bigoted remark probably from a white supremacist.

          It appears when born Caymanians commit crimes, they are suddenly Jamaicans and need to be deported. But when a born Jamaican who is naturalized does some good, they are Caymanian true and true. I.e. Cydonie Mothersil CAYMANIANS, IT’S OKAY TO ADMIT YOU HAVE HOME GROWN BORN CAYMANIAN CRIMINALS. It’s not only Jamaica where criminals exist.

      Yes, the corruption in the private sector might be something to think about, but the public service wouldn’t get any medals in that department! Corruption seems to be a part of the game to some of our leaders.
