Munir Yakub Patel, 22, agreed to use his position as an administration clerk at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court, Cranbrook Road, Barkingside, to avoid putting details of a traffic summons on a court database in exchange for £500.Well, well, well…
Patel, of Green Lane, admitted the charge at Southwark Crown Court today.
Outside court, Gaon Hart, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Public corruption is an extremely serious offence that undermines public faith in the integrity of those who work in the criminal justice system.Of course, he wasn’t sentenced straight away, oh no.
“His conduct has brought into disrepute the criminal justice system as he sought to undermine the very laws which he was employed to uphold.”
Patel was bailed until November 11 when he will be sentenced.One to watch.
Judge John Price warned him he may face immediate custody.
The maximum sentence is 10 years.
