Seven Jamaican women have been arrested and charged in Trinidad with lewd and suggestive dancing and could face time behind bars if they are unable to pay their fines.

They were among 13 women who appeared before a Chaguanas Magistrate on Monday.
The Jamaicans pleaded guilty to the charges while the others from the Dominican Republic, Peru and Colombia were remanded and ordered to re-appear on Tuesday because no translator was available to assist the court.
The Jamaicans were each fined $250 and in default of payment will spend one week in prison.
They were given one week to pay the fine.
Their attorney Joseph Honore told Magistrate Avason Quinlan that the women arrived in Trinidad two months ago and linked up with the Tribe mas camp to learn the art of wire bending with the intention of returning to Jamaica to open their own mas band.
The women were arrested early Saturday morning during a raid at a hotel.
It is alleged that the women were seen on a stage dancing in a sexual and suggestive manner.
They were arrested and charged.
The women reportedly admitted that they were dancing suggestively but denied being naked on stage.
