NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The estate of a policeman who was placed on half-pay after being accused of rape is entitled to the rest of his salary, a judge has ruled.

Constable Julian Outten joined the Royal Bahamas Police Force on January 28, 1998. He was interdicted and placed on half-pay on March 8, 2007 after he was accused of rape.

Outten remained interdicted until his death on February 4, 2015.

The pending case was discontinued following his death.

Elecia Outten and Edwin Burrows, the personal representatives of Outten’s estate, sued the Attorney General and the Commissioner of Police, seeking salary payments owed to the deceased.

Chief Justice Ian Winder ruled, “The criminal case against the deceased ended at the date of his death and thereafter formally discontinued.

As the proceedings did not result in any conviction or punishment against the deceased, he (and now his estate) shall be entitled to receive the full amount of his salary, which he would have received had he not been interdicted.”
