Pageant committee ‘reviewing’ new queen’s criminal case

| 12/08/2022 | 172 Comments
Miss Cayman Islands Universe 2022 Tiffany Conolly

(CNS): The situation surrounding the six criminal charges against the new Miss Cayman Universe, Tiffany Conolly (24) from West Bay, is under review, the pageant committee said in a very short statement Thursday. The committee claimed that Conolly met the “established eligibility requirements” to enter the contest and was accepted, even though it appears she had already been charged with assault and other offences during the selection period.

The committee said in a statement that the “additional details as to the pending charges” were “brought to the attention of the committee” sometime after Conolly became a contestant. “The Committee did seek counsel with relevant stakeholders including the franchise holder and the decision to allow Ms Conolly to proceed was taken after careful consideration. At this time the Committee is reviewing the facts surrounding this matter, consulting with the relevant stakeholders in order to make the appropriate determination as to how we proceed.”

CNS has asked the committee for details of the eligibility requirements and when they became aware of the charges and pending trial, and we are awaiting a response.

As reported on CNS Monday, Conolly is facing two counts of common assault, two counts of damage to property, and two further charges for disorderly conduct at a police station and one of assaulting a police officer. The beauty queen is due to stand trial in October, having pleaded not guilty to the allegations in Summary Court in March this year, around the same time that the pageant application process was underway.

Conolly was arrested following an altercation at a former boyfriend’s house, when she is alleged to have assaulted both her former lover and another family member before going on to assault a police officer at the detention centre following that arrest.

    The suggestion that this pageant allows women to improve their education, is laudable, but you have to wonder why women have to go through this horse show to get that chance. Why not just have a program to support more women to get better access to education WITHOUT them having to parade half naked to a collection of drooling male spectators with their hand down their trousers. Like someone else mentioned, this show is mired in standards from the 1950s. Time to stop it.

        Truth is they all messed up.

        1. Tiffany should have known better.
        2. Tiffany should have been honest from the beginning.
        3. Committee sh!t the bed. They should have got a police report of the incident.
        4. Committee should have got LEGAL advice.
        5. Committee should have considerered the OPTICS not just the legality.
        6. Committee need to understand “what does it mean to be Miss Cayman”

        They all messed up BUT she is not Miss Cayman material. This is not about NATIONALITY. This is not about TIFFANY. This is not about ehat this one did or that one did. This is about what she did that disqualified her from representing us.

        Miss Cayman is NOT JUST a beauty pageant. Its a CHARACTER pageant also.

        She is supposed to represent the best of us.

        If you have about 5 or 6 entrants a year you could probably drop the money spent on the pageant and take the money and just give it to 5 worthy students who had demonstrated some promise or career interest.

        How about scholarships for someone who did lots of volunteer work or wants to study something that’s not offered here instead of giving money to “Miss Best Smile” or “Miss Best Legs”.

      CNS: Ever since we launched CNS in 2008 we have consistently been accused of having political loyalties for the “other side” of whatever party people adhere to. These accusations will continue for as long as people expect us to skew the news for their favourite politicians – which are on occasion themselves. It’s silly and tiresome but comes with the territory.

        Sandra has admitted that she does support this Government but I have to say, she has never once not called out any of the PACT Government members whenever they screw up.

        I notice though Kenneth has been hiding a lot lately preferring to return to the Compass where they know they can’t say anything bad about him for fear of losing their Government advertising contracts. Politicians will do this when they are afraid to be asked the hard questions or have the balls to do the right thing..

    The Ministry & Premier voted for Tiffany to remain in the pageant. The Committee are unpaid charity workers following procedures passed down to them. The Ministry dropped the due diligence they did for 30 years. Poor Committee got to take the blame because they are harassed and bullied daily by CMR and powers that be. I wish everyone would get their facts straight. XXXX Why is the Committee getting the blame? They are not the franchiseholders? They did not write the procedures. Damn! Crazy just got worse.

    Re MCIU Committee stepping down – relax people, seriously?

    The committee does a fantastic job with this pageant and have a genuine concern for these girls and the personal growth of each one – that is most likely WHY they allowed Tiffany to compete.

    The committee was not thinking “oh, Cayman is going to want to hang us for keeping her” or “let’s get this girl out of our pageant before she leaves a stain” or “the pageant is going to look bad for having a contestant/winner with criminal charges”

    Obviously if the committee was thinking like that they would have ousted this young woman long time!

    The committee closely works with these girls, giving them enormous opportunities many would not otherwise have had – I am confident their main thought was not to deprive this young woman of the opportunities this pageant gives.

    Whether you support pageantry or not – in Cayman there are limited options for many of our women to advance in society with no family ties or money – these pageants allow the average girl a chance to progress, meet her government at her own dignitary level and become a VIP herself whilst learning etiquette, public speaking, elegance and so much more.

    The committee wants to give this chance to any young woman who wants it – unfortunately this genuine desire now has the community upset. Then if they had put her out everybody would be saying “they dont give people a chance, the girl just wants to better herself, this isnt female empowerment” yadda yadda yadda.

      I’m sorry, but I’m calling bullshit on your comment! As a female I have always been repulsed by pageants, whether for little girls or young women. However, each to their own. I am just wondering if that now that she is Miss Cayman if she during she is accused of doing the same behavior that she will be in court for in October, will the committee still say she can carry on until her case comes before the judge? Can you imagine the other contestants looking at this fiasco and wondering why the committee’s undying resolve to ignore the apparent majority on this island who believe they are incompetent with regard to their behavior towards running a pageant that draws the wrong attention to it? There are a lot of us, both men and women who cringe at the very thought of a pageant in this day and age, but that cringe feeling escalated to fury when this utter incompetence will draw such negative attention to our islands!!

    This whole thing is unfortunate and was very much avoidable.

    Right now the MCIU legal team should be drafting some very detailed criteria for contestants next year – absolutely no pending criminal charges or convictions for anyone entering.

    She should have never been allowed to enter – MCIU also should have forms that each entrant signs giving the MCIU permission to obtain more information from law enforcement agencies as well. There were 8 contestants this year, the pageant would have done just find with only 7.

    Overall, I enjoyed the event very much, I look forward to next year’s minus all this drama.

    XXXX

    The runners up have already been set back enough because of this whole thing; missing the chance to indulge in the moment of crowning after competing. Enough of the delay, it is inevitable that the crown will have to be passed along- get on with it.

    When I think back to when I was her age, I had done some stupid shit too. It was not things to get me arrested or have charges laid against me but it did cost me my job. No, I did not beat up anybody either. Thing is, she did what she was allowed to do, she entered but she did not crown herself. She saw the the committee as a donkey to ride and she rode it, simple. Honestly, these pageants are garbage to me and lack substance so I do not care about the outcome at all. We have criminals in our LA representing us and we also have bigger shit to be up in arms about like the COST OF LIVING and being raped by all these utility companies and grocery stores.

  34. My two cents. says:

    I don’t have a dog in this fight. That said, this is a tough one. Yes, this young lady should be held accountable for her actions. But at the same time, she is young and who didn’t make bonehead decisions at that age? I do know that I was her age once, and I made my share of mistakes at that age. It took some time to find the right path (without the assistance of family and community I might add). Those who find the right path tend to stay on it. This young lady has won a scholarship, which will no doubt help her find the right path. Should she be denied this opportunity to pursue the right path, or should she be held back because of mistakes made as a young person? I know there will be people on both sides of that question, which is understandable. If there is one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that we’ve all seen young Caymanians stick a toe on the wrong path, and then get dragged down that path for the rest of their lives. Do we want to see that happen to another young Caymanian? Or should she get a chance at this huge opportunity she’s been given, and possibly turn it around? Like I said, this is a tough one.

      They are the people who have been dealt a great injustice. I find it amazing that the benchmark so many people mention is that “she hasn’t been found guilty yet”! My God people, is our bar set so low that we dismiss previous guilty incidences (and a pending court case) as mere “frivolous young behavior”?

    Innocent until proven guilty and she met the entry requirements. She also is aware that she could be stripped of her crown if convicted. This just needs to play out.

      “Innocent until proved guilty” is gibberish cited online by apologists. The term is merely a reference to an evidential presumption in criminal trials, it has no relevance elsewhere. Organisations are perfectly entitled to take steps when allegations are made whether or not they have been considered by a Court. Indeed, if there is a moral conduct clause, this could be relied upon even after an acquittal if the organisation considered there was an issue on the balance of probabilities.

      Check her rap sheet, she was already guilty from the get go. This is Cayman now, legacy criminals are rewarded. Case in point, look at Kenny, MP presiding over this circus! It it any wonder why this happened….?

      I know a civil servant that posted a picture of herself in a thong on the beach. She got a warning letter stating it was ‘conduct unbecoming’. No breach of any laws, just an expected standard albeit selectively applied.

      She’s already been proven guilty. No convictions recorded, but still guilty.

      Yup. The committee did her bad to allow her to win knowing damn well it would create an uproar in the community. A few years back didn’t they strip Tonie Chisolm from her crown for some ridiculous thing like partying? Yet this girl has 6 criminal charges.

      Damage to her? She’s 24 and surely knew and understood exactly what she was doing. If she didn’t or still doesn’t then she is not the ambassador Cayman should have representing the country. Pretty simple really.

    But I thought she was allowed to enter with this being known…

    And more importantly didn’t she win best legs.

    How about we shut the whole Ms.Cayman farce down and spend the time and money elsewhere. Maybe a contest for Caymanian girls that Code or do charity work… something useful.

      Bang on lil Bobo in East End. But my people in West Bay live for this stuff and love Bush too.

      By the way, the runner up won Best Legs. She may get the crown.

      Yes love the idea. Shut down Ms Cayman and start a new pageant that is worthy of being in and notable around the region. We don’t want the fake charity, fake smiles and volunteer work because they HAVE to do it for the pageant, we want women who already do that before entering…another great example of a woman with accolades was first runner up last year I believe Kimberly Carlos.

    It would have been the easiest thing in the world for the committee to have said “we understand you have these legal issues, you are innocent until proven guilty, but you should deal with that first and, all being well, enter the competition next year”. That is exactly what would have happened in other countries. It’s staggering that the committee allowed this to happen, the whole pageant has already been brought into disrepute regardless of what happens next.

      even more staggering that the Committee see NOTHING wrong with it. Its mind-boggling to know that Deri and co have no moral sense. Not one person on the committee thought wait this might be a bad idea lets have her apply next year instead?

      @10:05am. I agree.

      The inevitable precedent that this fiasco sets only serves to diminish the current and future prestige of the MCIU pageant.

      Not taking urgent remedial action will most likely cause irreparable harm to what is a national beauty pageant.

    Hmmm .. it’s not her fault though that she was given the crown. She was just doing what a contestant would do – TRYING TO WIN! AND I MUST SAY, SHE DID A GOOD JOB! It’s just that the Pageant Committee members made A VERY HUGE BIG BLUNDER – It was decisions that were made from poor judgement! … At least now, it looks like they will do something to reverse it. 🤔

    When I first read about this I laughed so hard… ONLY in Cayman! Seriously though, such a poor representation of Cayman. She should have waited until and if she was clear. Such a shame pretty girl. Don’t be such a fool.
