St Ann’s Bay, St Ann – A St Ann man has found himself in trouble with the law a second time after he reportedly forged the signature of a policeman.

Neville James, who has another matter before the St Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court, was charged with forgery when he signed a police log book, giving the impression that it was signed by a policeman.

James is alleged to have signed the book after missing one of his days to report to the police.

The book is used to verify that people meet their bail requirement of reporting to a police station.

But James has denied the allegation. When he appeared in Court Wednesday, RM Vaughn Facey explained to him that an expert has concluded that he had forged the policeman’s handwriting.

However, James still maintained his innocence.

The matter is set for trial for April 8, 2015. (Jamaica Observer)
