Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, Paula Llewellyn, is seeking to clarify the factors which played a role in Brown’s sentencing.

She says the judge took Brown’s cooperation with the court into account when the decision was made to give him a 15-year sentence.

On Friday Ms Llewellyn told Nationwide News that Brown was schizophrenic. But she says it was another convict who benefited from the Sentence Reduction Day who was medically examined and found to be suffering from schizophrenia.

She says the schizophrenic convict, Kino Gilzene, was sentenced to seven years in prison. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter after killing a woman in December 2014 and hiding her body under his bed.

Meanwhile, Ms Llewellyn says both the proposed plea-bargaining law and the sentence reduction day initiative have an important place in the Jamaican society.

She says both initiatives seek to dispose of cases in a timely manner.
