Jamaica Crime News, Clarendon: Police Inspector, Daniel Campbell, who is attached to the May Pen Police Department, was freed of assault charges when he appeared the Clarendon Parish Court on Tuesday, August 21.
Inspector Campbell was facing charges of assault for allegedly beating two sisters, who are also vendors at the May Pen market during an incident which occurred in 2013.
Following the incident, a complaint was filed by the sisters and following an investigation, the DPP made a ruling that the Inspector should be charged.
During the Court proceedings, both sisters gave conflicting stories to Judge Dale Staple, as to the identity of the police officer who allegedly assaulted them.
Immediately the defense lawyer, Hugh Wildman made an application that the case should be thrown out, because the identification evidence was weak.
With this, the crown offered no further evidence and Inspector Campbell was released.
