664

Another alleged member of the so-called Uchence Wilson gang has been freed of charges of being part of a criminal organization.

Judith Johnson was found not guilty by Chief Justice, Brian Sykes, in the Supreme Court this afternoon.

She’s the fourth of the 25 people brought before the court to walk free.

When the trial resumed on Monday, Junior Rose and Shadae Beckford, were found not guilty of being part of a criminal organization.

During the trial the prosecution argued that Rose participated in robberies and shop break-ins.

The prosecution also argued that Beckford assisted a criminal organization.

Beckford was the only alleged member of the gang who was granted bail.

She was pregnant and ill at the time of her arrest.

Last month, Constable Stephan Martin, was freed of charges of being apart of a criminal organization.

He’s now before the Kingston & St. Andrew Parish court on charges of receiving stolen property.

In pre-trial hearings Constable Martin was alleged to be a spotter for the alleged gang.

All 25 were facing charges of being part of a criminal organization, allegedly ran by Uchence Wilson and Fitzroy Scott.
