KINGSTON, Jamaica — Attorney-at-law Dawn Satterswaite, her realtor husband Terrence Allen and three of their relatives along with convicted transnational drug trafficker, Andrew Hamilton, have entered not guilty pleas when their trial in the St Andrew Parish Court began yesterday.

Satterswaite and her five co-accused are charged with breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act.
The three relatives — Paulette Higgins, Janet Ramsay, and Ann Marie Cleary — were arrested on December 17, 2013 during operations carried out by the Major Organised Crime and Corruption Agency (MOCA) in different sections of the island.

According to MOCA, the operations signified the culmination of a protracted transnational investigation into a case of money laundering and other financial crimes. It was were carried out simultaneously in upper St Andrew, East Kingston, Portmore in St Catherine and Mandeville in Manchester.

MOCA detectives arrested Hamilton, who is a former member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, in December 2016 after he was deported to Jamaica, having served four and a half years in a US prison.

The trial is set to continue on December 11.
