A woman, who last month pleaded guilty to cruelty to a child and living off the earnings of prostitution, has withdrawn her plea.
Thirty-two-year-old Nadine Pitt was set to be sentenced in the Home Circuit Court on Friday, but in a surprise move withdrew the plea.
As a result, her attorney Peter Champagnie withdrew from the case, indicating that her interest would be best served by another attorney.
The matter was then put back on the mention list and will next be heard on July 11.
Pitt, a mother of three children, is to seek a new lawyer.
The child Pitt is accused of pimping was 12 years old in 2005 when she ran away from home to live with Pitt in the Lawrence Tavern area of St Andrew.
The following year, Pitt allegedly forced the girl into prostitution and lived off the ill-gotten earnings.
Pitt was allegedly busted after the girl, who got pregnant at 14, went to the police to report a dispute with the father of her child.
It was discovered then that the girl’s father had reported her missing in 2005.
Investigations by the police led to Pitt being arrested and charged in 2009.
