Lawyer willing to repay the money

Convicted attorney Ernest Winston Jackman says he is willing to repay the outstanding balance of the money he stole from HEJ Ltd more than ten years ago.

But to do so, he said, he needed to be out of prison.

“It is my desire to pay the balance of the money to the complainant,” he said, as he begged the No. 5 Supreme Court to impose a non-custodial sentence on him.

“I respect and accept the verdict of the jury and I tried not to waste the court’s time. However, it is not possible to be able to do it from where I am and I request that I be allowed the scope and opportunity to secure the balance to the complainant,” he said.

Jackman, 67, of Wiltshire Plantation House, Wiltshire, St Philip, was back before Justice Pamela Beckles after he was found guilty of stealing $678 414.75, between June 23, 2006 and March 5, 2007, belonging to HEJ Ltd. (HLE)
