Today in Supreme Court, former Regiment Commanding Officer David Curley, 55, pleaded guilty to asking prominent lawyer and former President of the Bermuda Bar Association, the late Justin Williams, to be nominated for a position in the Order of St. John.
In exchange for this nomination, Mr. Williams would receive firearms, of which he was a known collector, and was corruptly appointed official legal advisor to the Royal Bermuda Regiment.
Puisne Judge Juan Wolffe ordered that a Social Inquiry Report be conducted for Mr. Curley and adjourned the case until September 19, at which time a date for his official sentencing will be set.
Mr. Curley’s bail has been extended until that time.
