Policeman and wife charged with alleged harassment of former commissioner

In court: Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley with Sergeant Mark Monk

A police sergeant and his wife appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday accused of harassment of a former Commissioner of Police and the former head of police discipline.

Mark Monk, 39, was charged with using a phone to cause “annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety” towards Stephen Corbishley between June 8 and July 19 last year.

He was also accused of using a phone to harass Superintendent Gillian Murray, then head of the service’s professional standards department, between May 5 and August 27 last year.

Mr Monk was also charged with an attempted perversion of the course of justice by harassing investigating officers and falsely accusing them of perjury between June 9 and July 16 last year.

Tricia Monk, also 39, was charged with the use of a phone to harass Ms Murray between May 22 and July 14 last year.

The Monks did not enter a plea as their defence counsel, Sara Tucker, had not seen the evidence against her clients.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until April 17 and released the pair, from Sandys, on $2,000 bail.

She ordered them not to have any contact with the complainants.
