FORMER MONTSERRAT LEADER JAILED FOR 15 YEARS

Former Chief Minister of Montserrat David S. Brandt, a prominent attorney, has been jailed for 15 years after being found guilty last month on six counts of sexual exploitation of under-age girls.

Mr Brandt who served as Chief Minister of Montserrat from 1997 to 2001 was first arrested in September 2015 and had spent a considerable time in prison on pre-trial detention while extensive investigations were carried by local police and the UK’s National Crime Agency.

Following the June 30th guilty verdict following a five-week trial, he was sentenced on July 19th to prison terms ranging from seven to nine years on each of the six counts, and 15 years on a charge of perverting the course of justice.
