Marlon HarrisAn ex-police officer, who was convicted in 2010 for extorting $100 from a foreigner, must pay the Supreme Court a fine of $10,000 which was imposed against him upon conviction for extortion.
On Friday, March 15th, Marlon Harris, got the bad news at around 10:30 a.m., when his appeal was dismissed and his conviction and sentence affirmed by the judges of the Court of Appeal. In his appeal, the ex-cop was represented by attorney, Said Musa.

Musa had argued six points in the appeal process, none of which were successful.

Harris was accused of extorting $100 from Ayetekin Kelat on December 1st, 2008, at a police checkpoint. He got $100 from Kelat in exchange for no charges being pressed against him after he claimed he caught Kelat in a vehicle that was not insured.

On March 23rd, 2010, Harris was fined $10,000.

In the case, the Crown was represented by the DPP herself, Cheryl Lynn Vidal.
