Crown Counsel charged in Magistrates Court with four offenses

A Crown Counsel lawyer was today charged with having care and control of a car while impaired by alcohol.

40 year old Paul Wilson, was also charged with having control of the same vehicle while over the legal blood-alcohol limit, obstructing police and attempting to pervert the course of justice by “advising and reminding police officers” of his position as a Crown Counsel.

Mr Wilson, from Hamilton Parish, denied the offences, all which allegedly occurred on December 2, when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court today.

Magistrate Craig Attridge released Mr Wilson on $2,500 bail as he is due back in court on Monday.

Cindy Clarke, the Director of Public Prosecutions said  “This morning, 8 February 2024, Paul Wilson, a Crown Counsel in the Department of Public Prosecutions, appeared in Court charged with offences.

Mr. Wilson is entitled to the same due process as every defendant; however, in the interests of justice, we have instructed external counsel to prosecute, and Mr. Wilson has been re-assigned to another department until the final adjudication of his matter.”
