December 1, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett |

Attorney Earnest Winston Jackman has been sentenced to seven 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.

Jackmak, of Willshire 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 on November 23, Alrick Smith 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 Commissiong appeared on behalf of Jackman, while Principal State Counsel Krystal Delaney appeared for the State.
