St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Senior Cop Released from Fraudulent Conversion Charges: DSP McKain was arrested and charged by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) in August 2015, following a ruling from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Charges of Obtaining Money by False Pretenses and Fraudulent Conversion were on Thursday morning dropped against Deputy Superintendent of Police Denise McKain when the matter was heard in the St. Mary Parish Court.
The matter, which had been before the court since 2015, was dismissed after the prosecution offered no evidence against her.
DSP McKain was arrested and charged by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) in August 2015, following a ruling from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The DPP ruled that McKain be charged after allegations had been made that during the period 2009 to 2012 she used an unregistered organization to fraudulently solicit and obtain money from farmers of the Three Hills Farm District.
Following checks made by members of the district, the alleged activities being conducted by DSP McKain were uncovered. She was charged following a ruling by the director of public prosecutions.
Senior Superintendent of Police Dean Taylor, Director of Investigations for MOCA in commenting on the matter stated, “It is very unfortunate that the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions has decided to discontinue with this case. However, it is in their purview to discontinue any prosecution and therefore we have to abide by this directive; just as we were guided by the Office of the DPP prior to the charges being laid. MOCA and our partners are committed to arresting and charging persons who use their public office to carry out corrupt activities.”
