Christina Francine Miller, a Jamaican woman who allegedly forged documents with the hope of being registered as a pharmacist in Antigua Barbuda, has been remanded to prison.

She is due back in court on April 16, a date set by Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh who dealt with the case after the 29-year-old Cassada Gardens woman was charged.

Miller is accused of “Forgery of a Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, Pharmacy Degree” and “Uttering of a Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, Pharmacy Degree knowing same to be forged with intent to defraud.”

It is alleged she committed the offences between November 1 and 30, 2018.

Miller, who recently returned to Antigua and Barbuda from Boston, also has two charges of “Forgery of a College Bound High School Diploma and Uttering of a College Bound High School Diploma knowing same to be forged with intent to defraud.”

Similarly, those offences were allegedly committed last November.

Miller’s alleged crimes were uncovered when officials from the Antigua and Barbuda Pharmacy Council sought to verify the authenticity of the documents she provided to support her claim that she was qualified to be registered as a pharmacist.
