The daughter of Dale Holness, Damara was pleaded guilty to “one-count information” charging her with “Lying on a coronavirus relief loan application and fraudulently obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars intended to help small businesses financially survive the Covid-19 pandemic”.
Reportedly, it was June 2021, when she received a $300,000 Covid relief PPP loan for her company Holness Consulting Inc, saying she had 18 employees and spent an average of $120,000 each month on payroll. But in reality, she didn’t have any employees nor any payroll expenses.
Damara’s sentencing was dated to take place on January 20, 2022, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She could be facing up to 20 years in prison and also a fine of up to $250,000.

Damara Holness Mother

But even when Damara’s mother would come back, she would choose to stay with her (because she loved him more).
Years after remaining a single father, Damara’s dad finally decided to rekindle his romantic life. He then went on to marry Kimberly Williams Holness. The husband-wife often appeared over several campaigns together. But at times, Dale never introduced his wife, even though she would be seated right next to him.
As for Damara’s siblings, she has six. Yes, don’t be surprised, Dale is married twice and has five different baby-mothers. In 2021, two of Damara’s siblings were 16 years old, and the rest were 11, 23, 26, 32 respectively.
Unfortunately, Damara’s brother David has passed away. The family misses him dearly.
Also, Damara’s little brother Dayalan’s mother, Shelly-Ann Ritchie left this world on September 28, 2012, at the age of 37. According to Damara, she made a promise to her to stick by her brother’s side. “That will never change! I am my bother’s keeper,” Damara remarked.
