Case Caption: Maxine Bowry, (Appellant/Defendant) vs. People of the Virgin Islands (Appellee/Plaintiff)Case Number: S. Ct. Crim. No. 2008-033Date: 07/28/2009Author: Hodge, Rhys S. Citation: Summary:

Appellant Maxine Bowry (hereafter "Bowry") argues that this Court should reverse her convictions for four counts of obtaining money under false pretenses pursuant to title 14, section 834(2) of the Virgin Islands Code because the trial court purportedly 1) erred in denying her motion for acquittal due to the failure of the Appellee, the People of the Virgin Islands (hereafter "People"), to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she had a specific intent to defraud; 2) made numerous evidentiary errors during trial; and 3) should have granted her motion for acquittal or new trial when it discovered that the People failed to provide Bowry with a copy of an accounting report prior to her trial. For the following reasons, we shall affirm Bowry's convictions.
