Woman Pleads Guilty To Possession Of High-Powered Rifle

Saida Kelser Twilar Joseph of Bendals

A hairdresser was remanded to prison today after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of a high-powered rifle.

Twenty-nine-old Saida Joseph of Bendals reportedly told a Magistrate she was holding the weapon for someone but did not know what it was.

Police found the .22 magnum rifle in her bedroom during a search last Saturday.

The weapon, which is fitted with a telescope lens, was reportedly wrapped in a sheet and tucked away in a closet.

Joseph was initially charged alongside her brother and father but the charges against the men were dropped after she took responsibility for the offence.

Joseph will remain on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison pending her sentencing next week.

  1. Go heavy with sentencing until she tells us who the person is so he can tell us the source of this weapon. Let Greg a hold on this guns trade before it gets out of hand.

  2. Women are mortally afraid of guns and it is highly unlikely that this gun is hers. Not wanting to implicate the rightful owner for whatever reasons, she might be willing to take “jail time” or a heavy fine as recently allowed for by the amendment to the gun and ammunition laws. I really hope the court shows some mercy because quite honestly, this lady is peace to the dead and incarcerating her doesn’t get to the meat of the problem. It is the source that we need to get at and deal with them.
