Lawyer ‘won’t pay up’ for town house

The owners of the town house he sold live a mere 120 feet away from him, but up to today he has not received a cent from the sale.

So said John Huggins as he testified in the theft and money laundering trial of attorney Ernest Jackman in the No 5 Supreme Court.

“I am 85 years old and this thing has taken a great toll on my life,” Huggins said yesterday.

The complainant, of Maxwell Main Road, Christ Church, told the court Jackman was introduced to him by an agent and the attorney represented him “in a couple transactions”.

He explained those transactions were the construction and sale of five town houses at the corner of Hilton Road and Maxwell Main Road. He now lives in one and he sold the other four. (HLE)
