Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh to Defend Against Ten Disciplinary Charges


Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh of the Magistrate’s Court in Antigua and Barbuda is gearing up to defend herself against ten disciplinary charges filed by the Regional Judicial and Legal Services Commission (JLSC).

After an investigation into complaints about her conduct, a tribunal hearing, overseen by a panel of three judges, is scheduled to commence next month.

While the specific charges remain undisclosed, Walsh’s lawyer, Kenny Kentish, has confirmed her intention to vigorously defend against them.

Over the past three years, numerous complaints have surfaced regarding Walsh’s behavior and treatment of staff, sparking further scrutiny.

  1. You go girl! These dead beat baby daddies scared of you because you call them out on their bullshit!!

    Why should a court even have to get you to take care of your own child?? You had fun making love, now run from responsibility

  2. She’ll get off, because she’s aligned with the TRIPARTITE (politicians, judiciary and the self-enriched elites), and they all seem to be in lockstep/cahoots together.

    These people are rarely held to account.


  3. Only who in the kitchen feel the heat she rh needs to resign she has a clique and all them awful never see nothing so horrible in a work place yet every police officer come there to work them run from you only the big lazy one staying around you 😂😂😂
    Then a fight the deputy chief a say she nah move but you go loose everything

    Me no forget how much wrongs she has done at the court and a try hide up everything lady go home and smoke you carton of cigarettes like you do everyday at work
    A now it sweet 😂😂😂😂😂
    And oh when you leaving the court for good walk with the marriage b**** that was transferred from the high court 😂😂😂😂

  4. Somebody needs to explain why the Magistrates court is unable or unwilling to operate on s systematic schedule in the year 2023! Everyone is told to be there at 9 a.m. for their hearing. You might be kept waiting until after 12.00 only to be told your matter is adjourned for 3 to six months. What a shocking waste of everybody’s time day after day after day. Just make a proper schedule so people can arrive at 15 minute intervals. This how the rest of the civilised world operates. Show a bit of initiative. It isn’t 1867 any more. Time for s change!
