Prison officer sent to Dodds

Prison officer Shawn McDonald Herbert returns to Dodds today as a prisoner and not as an employee, after pleading guilty in the District ‘C’ Magistrate’s Court to three offences under the country’s Prison Act.

The charges stem from a search by authorities of prison cells, which turned up  a number of unauthorized letters and photographs.

Subsequent investigations and a search of Herbert revealed that he had a number of unauthorized letters and photographs in his possession.

The 41-year-old resident of Olive Gap, Tudor Bridge, St Michael was therefore arrested and charged with giving a number of letters and photographs to a prisoner without lawful authority; bringing a number of letters and photographs out of Her Majesty Prison Dodds without lawful authority; and attempting, without lawful authority, to convey a number of letters and photographs to a prisoner.

The offences allegedly occurred between June 17 and September 14, 2016.

Herbert, who was remanded today for one week,  returns to court next Friday, September 23.
