Prison officer granted bail

A 47-year-old prison officer was today released on $500 bail after pleading not guilty to a criminal offence.

The offence reportedly occurred on December 16.

However, Goodman denied the charge when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court and was granted bail with one surety.

He returns to court on February 26.
