A WOMAN will be sentenced on September 27 on charges of attempted robbery and absconding bail.
Viniana Vokiti appeared before magistrate Sufia Hamza yesterday and denied the charge of attempted robbery but pleaded guilty to the latter charge.
The court heard that on the evening of June 17 last year, Vokiti attempted to rob a service station on Victoria Pde in Suva.
She was apprehended and taken in for questioning and admitted the offence, saying she was drunk at the time.
On March 27 this year, she was released on bail and told to appear in court on April 23 which she failed to do.
A bench warrant was issued and she was arrested and has been in remand since.
In setting the sentencing date, Ms Hamza ruled for the accused to remain in custody, adding this would be taken into consideration when she delivers her sentence on September 27.
