Lauren Rae Tilley tries to hide her face from reporters as she is led into provincial court in St. John’s Tuesday.
Lauren Rae Tilley hung her head and tried to hide her face from reporters as she was led into provincial court in St. John’s Tuesday.
Lawyers agreed to release her upon payment of two $2,500 sureties.
The 28-year-old — who was deemed mentally fit to stand trial and has no criminal record — is charged with a single count of robbery.
Police say Tilley walked into Chatters Cafe on Duckworth Street at around 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 and demanded cash before taking off.
Other conditions of her release include that she adhere to a curfew except while she’s at Humberwood addiction treatment facility or in the company of the people responsible for posting her sureties. She has to abstain from alcohol and drugs and stay away from Chatters Cafe.
She’s due back in court Dec. 4.
