(KENORA, ON) – A woman with many connections to gangs in the Kenora area is alleged to have been involved in a violent robbery that occurred some time ago.
20-year-old Gabrielle Ogemah appeared in a Thunder Bay bail court via telephone from the Kenora OPP detachment this morning. She was in front of Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio.
Crown Attorney Franceline Auclair was also present, along with a duty counsel lawyer.
Ogemah had a bench warrant issued for her arrest a while ago, it had spawned from her not attending court when she was required to do so. She is also being charged with possession of stolen property, likely a result of the robbery.
Her new charges are:
- Failure to attend court
- Possession of stolen property
She already had charges working their way through the criminal justice system, which is what resulted in her failure to appear in court charge. Below are those charges from July 21st, that she was previously charged with:
- Failure to comply with probation
The Crown is willing to release her on her own recognizance in the amount of $300 with no deposit needed under the following conditions:
- She is required to reside at an address on a First Nation reserve
- She must not attend at Safeway in Kenora
- She must not attend at Wal-Mart in Kenora
- She must report to her probation officer by November 30th, 2018
Ogemah accepts the proposed conditions, as she has refused the assistance of duty counsel. The Justice of the Peace orders her released and to return to court in Kenora on December 6th, 2018.
Ogemah has numerous connections to the Native Syndicate gang, and is free to walk the streets after a quick bail appearance.
Ogemah is escorted back to her jail cell at the OPP detachment in Kenora, where she will wait until the court clerk completes the paperwork and sends it to the detachment.
