Horace Anthony Gayle, the records clerk who was charged for breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, was sentenced on Thursday, February 13 to six months in prison.
After a little over three months, Gayle pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting and accepting under the Act.
Reportedly, he was arrested on Monday, November 11, 2019 in a sting operation by the police’s Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau, during which he accepted $45,000 he had earlier arranged to collect.
That amount was the remainder of $110,000 which he had solicited to produce and deliver a clean police record for an applicant.
The applicant is ineligible and has a criminal record.
