Customs officer to spend 2 months in prison for failure to pay fine

Customs officer to spend 2 months in prison for failure to pay fine

Senior Customs officer, Delvin Green will have to spend a couple of months at Her Majesty’s Prison after failing to pay a fine which he received for common assault.
He was found guilty on September 14, 2020, for an incident which took place back in August 2015.

He was ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 by October 15, 2020.

Since there is no record of him paying the fine by the deadline, Green was to appear before the court on Monday to explain why the sum was not paid.

He was a no-show.

Due to Green’s absence, Magistrate Christilyn Benjamin issued a warrant for his arrest. This will result in the Great Mountain resident spending a mandatory default sentence of two months at the Balsam Ghut facility for failing to pay.
