Mary John Supporter Begs Public To Help With Her Legal Expenses


POINTE XPRESS: David Boyd, a Canadian supporter of self-proclaimed social activist Mary John, has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help with her legal troubles.

John is presently on bail, charged with an offence under the Electronic Crimes Act in connection with a social media post she made on 4th October, 2021.

Following the homicide of Piccadilly resident, Jane Finch, in October 2021, John allegedly posted the name, personal details and photo of a woman whom she alleged was responsible for the crime. Minutes after it was published, John allegedly removed the post when she apparently learned that the person she accused was not the person ultimately implicated in the crime.

But the damage was done as the original post went viral.

John’s victim claims that she received threatening messages and was the target of other forms of intimidating contact from people who believed Mary John’s inaccurate post.

The woman John blasted and the woman now in police custody share similar names.

John did issue an apology to the wrongfully implicated woman, however it was followed by another very defiant post in which she accused her victim’s aunt, Eurenda Jeremiah, of being “unfair” to her when the family responded in their own social media post to John’s error.

In an attempt to minimise the damage she caused, John said she removed the post after “30 seconds”, used the word “allegedly” and issued an apology.

She continued that she offered to pay legal fees for the victim to consult with lawyers she recommended to them and tried to convince Jeremy that “she has no grounds for a lawsuit.”

In her post on 5th October, John openly stated that she told Jeremy that she could lodge a  complaint against her with the Criminal Investigation Department as comments under Jeremy’s post in defence of her niece, John’s victim, were in violation of the Electronic Crimes Act which “will drag her into a long drawn out back and forth with CID and the Magistrates’ Court.”


John also accused the victim of having an “agenda”.

In what turned out to be the mother of all Uno reverse cards, John ended up being the one to run afoul of the Electronic Crimes Act.

In a Magistrate’s Court appearance on 4th January Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh revoked John’s station bail and ordered new bail conditions which increased John’s bail to $10,000, requires her to report to the police station three times per week where she must sign in, and as a further condition of her bail, she was required to surrender her passport.

Chief Magistrate Walsh also warned John not to use her social media pages to commit any offence in contravention of the Electronic Crimes Act or her bail will be revoked.

It is these circumstances that led Boyd to launch the GoFundME which has a goal of CAD$31,500 (USD$25,184.56) which he says will be used to help John cover her legal expenses.

Boyd also wagged a finger at authorities who he suggested were out to get John.

“Law enforcement and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), with whom she has had a rocky relationship in recent years, has thrown the book at her,” Boyd wrote.

So far the fundraiser has received CAD$900.

Mary John returns to court on 24th March for committal proceedings.

  1. What happened to her brother. One patient from practice and more than cover her legal fees. Better yet what happened to the 140k she got from Cliff Williams. Karma is a b***** ain’t it Mary. Know you know how all those people you defame feel😂

  2. This is a total mess, and the word is MESS. As the old people in Willikies used to say, “If ya got a big mouth, ya better have deep pockets”. Or as the old timers on Nevis St. liked to warn those with loose lips: “Watch ya mouth”!!! Scriptures warn, “What you reap you sow”. This whole MESS is a good lesson for all of us. Chuups. Pay your own bills.

  3. Sir Dr. John don’t want no part of that. Mary getting what she deserves. They should loss her in jail. She mind to many people business look fame and recognition. She is not an activist but a waste of space. I hope they jail her and the family sue her

  4. Mary, you really asking poor people for help! Ask you millionaire brother for the money. I should start a go fund me page for the police, so they can loss you in jail were you belong. You now, Ellie next. Justice isn’t blind, time you get what you deserve.

  5. The question is, what happens to those who also copied and shared Mary John’s initial post?

    If you see a robbery in progress, as in #SMASH n #GRAB and join in, and get caught on camera or otherwise, you are also charged with a crime.
    If a person(A)is been beaten by another(B) and other join in to help beat beat A, those joining B can also be charged all the way to murder.

    So, again why aren’t others in Antigua & Barbuda who copied and shared John’s initial post not being charged as well?

  6. People don’t be fooled. She enjoys making reckless comments about all kinda people on Facebook, because she thinks she can get by on her lastname. In fact she boasted to the woman that she can pay the woman’s lawyer fees, because she was so cocky and condescending thinking that she is untouchable. Now that shit hit the fan, she is clammering for money??? I don’t blame Joey and her family for distancing themselves from her. She is an embarrassment to them and a menace to society. Hopefully she will learn her lesson. Meanwhile….not even a penny should go towards that undeserving Go Fund Me. Where is her big fren Jackie Quinn and Pearl to help her out?

  7. I’ve been around a looong time,and I don’t know this woman at all. Who she be? Somebody important or just a wannabe???? I’m serious.

  8. Time and time agin this woman on social media saying all kind of awful things about people and now you are saying we the people must help her, you need to get lost

  9. Why should we support Mary, she is only looking fame for herself, she care about no one. Her brother Sir Dr. can more than support her or her cousin from Canada or her sister from New York. Aren’t they not ashamed to ask people for money when they have so much.
