Popular blogger Stephanie Chase of The Chase Files could end up in court facing contempt charges after one of her posts nearly led to a mistrial in an indecent assault case.

Judge Pamela Beckles ordered an investigation into the posts, which have been deleted, after the blogger came under fire when she was hauled before Supreme Court No. 5.

“We are going to discuss this now because I want Ms Chase to understand the seriousness of this matter. And I will say it now. I want this matter to be thoroughly investigated. We need a result. Even if this case has to get a decision somewhere, I want it to go to the end, so that once and for all people understand the seriousness of what happened here,” the judge said. .

“The reality is that this could end up causing exactly what you didn’t want, further delay if a mistrial were to be declared.”

The judge’s comments came during the just-concluded trial of Rico Renaldo Edwards. (HLE)
