Police awaiting legal advice on one matter involving Bishops’ teacher

The Guyana Police Force is currently awaiting advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions on the way forward on one of the matters involving Bishops’ High School teacher Coen Jackson.

This was related by Commander of `A’ Division Marlon Chapman on Friday night.

Jackson, 38, an Economics teacher, has been accused of preying on students and grooming them in preparation for a sexual relationship.

On November 20, an official complaint was made to the Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson by Cultural Policy Advisory Ruel Johnson against the teacher. On November 24, the matter was handed over to the police after the Ministry of Education concluded its investigations.

It was claimed by Jackson that the allegations, which were made against him by  Johnson, were rooted in personal grievances between the two, including a past relationship he shared with Johnson’s partner.

The woman at the centre of the complaint, Cris Smith, in a Facebook post, had broken her public silence, saying that she now believes that she was preyed upon by Jackson.
