Lawyer Charged: Perverting Course Of Justice

December 8, 2014

[Updated] In Magistrates Court this morning [Dec 8], three men – lawyer Kamal Worrell, Devon Hewey, and Dujon Reid-Anderson – were charged with perverting the course of justice in a Supreme Court attempted murder case involving Mr. Hewey and Cervio Cox.

Mr. Worrell, 34, and Mr. Reid-Anderson had bail set at $10,000 each, while Mr. Hewey will remain in custody. Reid-Anderson, a Jamaican national, was required to surrender his travel documents.

Both Mr. Anderson and Mr. Hewey face additional charges regarding tampering with witnesses by allegedly offering payments and protection, with the primary aim being to cause a witness to deny that the pillion passenger on the night of the attempted murder was who the prosecution claimed it was.

The alleged actions leading to the alleged perversion of the course of justice were alleged to have occurred between July and October 2014. As the charges must be heard in the Supreme Court, none of the defendant had to enter a plea.

Update December 2015: Mr Worrell, who had maintained his innocence, has been acquitted of all charges.

    These men are innocent until proven guilty. I always find it a shame that you can be named before your day in court. Not matter what your name is tainted- even if exonerated
