Former Royal Cayman Islands Police Inspector
Anthony White pleaded guilty Monday to ‘insulting
the modesty of a woman’.
The 47-year-old White, who left the police
service last year for unspecified reasons, was arrested on Friday, 5 August in
connection with the case. He was formally charged a week later.
In court Monday, White was given a $100 fine and Magistrate Valdis
Foldats agreed not to record the conviction on the former inspector’s
According to the Cayman Islands Penal Code,
the charge of insulting the modesty of a woman involves “a person who, with
intent to insult the modesty of any woman, utters any word, makes any sound or
gesture or exhibits any object intending that such world or sound shall be
heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen by such woman, or intrudes
upon the privacy of such woman, is guilty of an offence and liable to
imprisonment for three years”.
White was the one-time head of the RCIPS
training unit. He also taught criminology classes at the University College of
the Cayman Islands and holds a PhD criminology.
He now lives in Michigan, USA.
Attempts by the Caymanian Compass to
contact the former inspector for comment earlier this month were not returned.
A police spokesperson said White’s decision
to leave the police service last year had nothing to do with the current
investigation against him.
