Man steals drugs, learns lesson, becomes lawyer

A man who was jailed for stealing drugs has been admitted to the Bermuda Bar.

Shawn Crockwell was working as a Supreme Court clerk in Bermuda when he used his position to access and steal $600,000 worth of heroin. He was sentenced to jail by Chief Justice Richard Ground, who has now, 13 years later, admitted him to the Bar.

Crockwell began studying law whilst in prison, and on his release headed over to De Montfort University in Leicester where he passed his LPC. As well as a lawyer, he is also a Bermudan MP - but he described his call to the Bar as "the greatest milestone thus far in my life".

Chief Justice Ground said that he had allowed Crockwell to join the Bar after satisfying himself that the offences took place before he had qualified and while he was still young.

He added that "the Criminal Code says that one of the objectives of sentencing in criminal cases is to assist in rehabilitating offenders... we can only genuinely subscribe to that if we are willing to give real effect to rehabilitation when it occurs..."
