Police Sergeant gets 6-months Hard Labour

34

A Police Sergeant was yesterday sentenced to six months at hard labour in the Yallahs Resident Magistrate’s Court in St. Thomas.

The Policeman, Glenford Campbell, was found guilty of breaching the Corruption Prevention Act.

Sergeant Campbell, who was attached to the Cedar Valley Station, was arrested in November, 2011.

Reports are that he was on patrol duty in the Cedar Valley Community, when he cited a motorist for traffic violations.

He then corruptly solicited and accepted an undetermined sum of money in order to throw out the prosecution.

A report was made to MOCA and Sergeant Campbell was arrested and charged.

The Policeman, who’s out on 1-million dollars bail, has appealed the ruling.
