Police officer and spouse appear in dock

| 17/06/2014

(CNS): A police sergeant, who has been suspended from duty as he is facing charges of obstructing, preventing, perverting or defeating the course of justice, appeared in Summary Court Tuesday along with his wife. Represented by Charles Clifford, Shawn and Ruth Bodden’s case was adjourned for one week, as the local defence attorney said he had received no paperwork from the crown in relation to the charges against his clients. No details have yet been revealed about the allegations but the Anti-corruption Unit confirmed in the wake of the charges that it was not their case. Sgt Bodden is a member of the RCIPS marine unit and the couple were bailed by Chief Magistrate Nova Hall to return to court on 24 June.
