THE DECISION ON RECUSAL of a judge in a high-profile case is still yet to be decided.

This is the latest in the case of Director of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock vs Frank Gibson, and Frank Gibson vs the Attorney General.

Gibson was accused of murdering Francine Bolden in 2002 but the charge was dropped on November 8, 2012, after Leacock concluded there was insufficient evidence in the matter, which attempted to use teeth marks as part of the case.

The dismissal came after Gibson had spent ten years on remand. He sued the state and the DPP, claiming he was wrongfully charged, imprisoned and prosecuted. (TKS)
