Bajan attorney jailed for theft and money laundering

Attorney Ernest Winston Jackman has been sentenced to 7  years for stealing his clients’ money and money laundering.

However, with the 214 days on remand deducted, he will only serve 6 years and 151 days at Dodds Prison.

Jackman, of Wiltshire Plantation House, St Philip, had denied stealing $678 414.75 belonging to HEJ Ltd, between June 23, 2006, and March 5, 2007.

He had also pleaded not guilty to engaging in money laundering in that he disposed of sums totaling $678 414.75, being the proceeds of crime.

When the matter was called before Justice Pamela Beckles in the No. 5 Supreme Court this morning, Alrick Scott KC, attorney for complainant John Huggins said no part of the outstanding money had been repaid as indicated by Jackman on the last occasion, who has already repaid half of the amount of money.

Attorney Sally Comissiong appeared on behalf of Jackman, while Principal State Counsel Krystal Delaney appeared for the State.(RA)
