Quinlan revealed *

Court transcript, evidence of former magistrate-now judge differ

Avason Quinlan-Williams


The decision of the Judicial and Legal Service Commission (JLSC) to exonerate former magistrate and newly appointed High Court judge Avason Quinlan-Williams of misconduct charges appears to contradict evidence gathered during the Anthony Carmona one-man fact-finding tribunal.

Court transcripts and other official documents obtained by the Sunday Express show Anthony Wilson and Robert Spencer, charged separately with possession of mari­juana for the purpose of trafficking, informed Quinlan-Williams they had already appeared before another magistrate on the morning of June 29, 2009.

Quinlan-Williams was charged by the JLSC with misconduct in bringing the judicial and legal service into disrepute and misconduct in bringing the administration of justice into disrepute.
