The man who had been convicted of stealing $1.1 million from the Government’s coffers while he was a clerk at the Psychiatric Hospital, should be a free man today.

Yesterday, the Court of Appeal allowed Anderson Ryan Ince’s appeal and quashed his sentence and conviction. He appeared via Zoom.

However, Ince will find out later this year if the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) believes he should be retried for the offence.

It was in October 2017 that Ince, of Hannays, St Lucy, and formerly of Yearwood Road, Sugar Hill, St Joseph, was found guilty of stealing $1 118 500 belonging to Psychiatric Hospital, between August 1, 2003, and August 1, 2005.

He was also found guilty of money laundering in that he engaged in transactions totalling $1 118 500, which were the proceeds of crime. (HLE)
