Police Constable Sentenced to 15-years

Constable Sherwood Simpson, who was in 2013 accused of being part of a team of Policemen who forced a man into the bushes, shot him and left him for dead, was today sentenced to 15-years imprisonment.

Simpson was convicted in the Gun Court in Kingston two weeks ago.

Constable Simpson was investigated and charged by the Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM.

He was prosecuted by the office of the DPP.
