Attorney sentenced to six years

Attorney Ernest Winston Jackman has been sentenced to six years, and 151 days in jail for stealing his clients’ money.
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)
