Woman found guilty of trying to extort $10M from ex-boyfriend

The 20-year-old woman who was charged with trying to obtain $10 million from her ex-boyfriend by threatening to make a false rape report against him has been found guilty of the crime.

Guilty: Princess Williams

Princess Williams of Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was initially charged last year March. She had denied the charge which stated that between January 4 and January 7, 2021, at Georgetown, with intent to extort $10,000,000 from Kenrick Thomas, she threatened to accuse him of raping her. She had been placed on $100,000 bail. Williams’s trial was conducted by Magistrate Rondel Weever, who on Friday, found her guilty as charged.
As such, Williams was remanded to prison pending sentencing which is fixed for June 6 when a probation report on her will be presented at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
It was reported that Williams and Thomas had shared a relationship for four months. She last visited Thomas’s residence on January 4, 2021. However, they got into an argument which led to one of them ending the relationship.
Following the break-up, Williams sent a voice note to Thomas, claiming that he had raped her. She further gave him an ultimatum to either pay her $10 million or she would make a report to the Police. After receiving the threats, Thomas lodged a report with the Police. (G1)
