Bail extended for female cop accused of unlawfully releasing prisoner
The case against Constable Kaye Falconer, one of three police officers on trial in relation to the reported unlawful release of a prisoner from the Montego Bay lock-up in 2013, is set to continue in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on July 24.
Constable Falconer, who is charged with harbouring a fugitive, had her bail extended.
The allegations against Falconer are that on February 24, 2013 then fugitive Greg Taylor was reportedly found at her home.
He was reportedly found hiding under a table at the time of his capture by a police team.
Taylor was held after he had reportedly been released from police custody under questionable circumstances on January 30, 2013.
Constables Raymond Johnson and Alicia Hutchinson-Brooks, the other two officers implicated in Taylor’s alleged unlawful release, are being tried separately on corruption charges.
They will make their next court appearance on July 31.
