Ex top jailer to spend 3 months looking out

Santo Domingo.- Former Prisons director Mario Acosta was transferred under tight security to Najayo prison yesterday, indicted on charges of accepting a more than RD$1.0 million bribe from alleged money launderer Pascual Cordero Martinez (El Chino), in exchange for favors.

The former official was escorted out of a Ciudad Nueva Courthouse cell where he was being held since last week, and taken to Najayo, where he’ll spend three months to await trial.

Althoug Santos insists he’s innocent, National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso had requested one year in jail to await trial.
