KINGSTON, Jamaica — Former commandant of the Island Special Constabulary Force, Harold Crooks, was given a two year sentence which was suspended for three years in the Home Circuit Court today.

Crooks was earlier this month convicted on two counts of indecent assault on a minor. He was freed of another charge of carnal abuse.

In May 2010, the 72-year-old Crooks, left the island a day before he was scheduled to be interrogated at the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse in relation to the allegations. 

He was held while after he jumped off a cruise ship in Ocho Rios, St Ann.
