Lawyer on money laundering charges posts bail
Attorney-at-law Dawn Satterswaite has been released on bail after three days in police custody for her alleged involvement in a massive money laundering scheme.
On her first court appearance on Friday, Satterswaite and her two co-accused, Paulette Higgins and Janet Ramsay, were each granted bail in the sum of $10 million.
Satterswaite’s attorney, Anthony Pearson, told The Gleaner-Power 106 News Centre that his client took up her bail offer on Friday.
The three are facing money laundering charges for their alleged ties to admitted Jamaican drug kingpin Andrew Hamilton who is awaiting sentencing in the United States on drugs, money laundering and firearm related charges.
In outlining the case against them, prosecutors charged that between 1998 and 2009 Hamilton acquired more than $500 million in high value assets and that Satterswaite was the person responsible for maintaining them.
