CLARIFICATION

An article published September 30, 2017, under the headline Cops Walk Free After Nine Years incorrectly stated that the policemen were freed of grievous sexual assault. They were, in fact, found not guilty of indecent assault in the St Catherine Circuit Court. The men, who were charged in 2008, were before the court on charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice and indecent assault. The perversion case was tried in the St Catherine Parish Court and the policemen were found not guilty. When the indecent assault case was brought before the St Catherine Circuit Court last Friday, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions indicated it would not be pursuing the charge. Consequently, a not-guilty verdict was entered and the policemen walked free after nine years.
