Robert Baccus and Mark Baccus both pled guilty when they appeared in the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court on Monday April 16, 2018, for Uttering Forged Documents and fined Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars ($800,000.00) or nine months in prison.
In 2013 Baccus Engineering Work submitted an application to the National Contracts Commission (NCC) to be registered as a Public Sector Contractor. However, during the verification of the documents it was discovered that the individual listed on Baccus application as a resident engineer was not working with the company at the time but, was otherwise employed to the Rural Water Supply.
The matter was subsequently reported to MOCA and the men arrested and charged for Uttering Forged Documents. During the hearing of the case on Monday April 16, 2018 both men pleaded guilty to the charge and were sentenced.
