Woman who said she was sex traffic victim jailed

Edith Orumwenes, also variously known as Edith Jonho and Joy Jolly, pleaded guilty at Ballinrobe District Court (sitting in Castlebar) to failing to provide travel documents when stopped by a detective garda in Castlebar on November 12th.

The woman, who initially gave her name as Edith Jonho, claimed she had left home to avoid a forced marriage and had been coerced into coming to Ireland under the false pretence that she would be given a job here.

Before sentencing the woman to four months in prison, Judge Mary Devins noted that she had done very little to help herself.
