(CMR) Former police constable Courtney Levy, accused of threatening a witness for a murderer, was sentenced to four years in prison on Monday, 18 December.
Levy was charged with obstructing the course of justice and breach of trust after he reportedly delivered a threatening message from Roger Bush to his ex-girlfriend to stop her from saying anything about him murdering his son. This led to her keeping quiet for more than a year.
Justice Roger Chapple, in handing down the guilty verdict earlier this year, said Levy was Bush's “willing messenger” and would have succeeded in perverting the course of justice if the witness did not find the courage to come forward.
He was found guilty last year of murdering his son and was sentenced to 33 years in prison.
