Correctional Officer 58-year-old Homer Miller was on Monday freed of corruption charges in the St Catherine Parish Court.

Miller, who was charged with obtaining money by means of false pretence and conspiracy to defraud, was freed by senior parish judge Tara Reid-Carr who said that the Crown failed to establish a case against him.

He was represented by attorneys Graham and Keith Bishop.

Miller, who is attached to St Catherine Adult Correctional Centre, was accused of collecting money to have persons recruited to the correctional department.

He was arrested in 2013 during a sting operation involving an alleged complainant.

Miller was subsequently charged.

He denied the allegations.
