A call has been made for Serious Offences Court prosecutor, Sergeant Adolphus Delpesche, to be granted a scholarship to pursue law studies.

Former District 2 Magistrate, Raymond Cadette, made the call at the sitting of the Serious Offences Court on Wednesday at the time commending Sergeant Delpesche for his prosecuting skill and knowledge of the law. {{more}}

“He is the best, the very best I’ve ever seen. Whenever I have to come up against him, I always have to do my homework. He should, as a matter of a token, be allowed a scholarship. He is just sitting there with all his knowledge,” Cadette told the court.

Sergeant Delpesche has 20 years service as a police officer. He spent seven years as a detective attached to the Criminal Investigations Department where he gathered a great deal of experience in investigations and gathered knowledge of the law.

Sergeant Delpesche said his experience at district police stations has been very rewarding to him. He said while at the district stations, retired Police Inspector Don Wright taught him how to use the law book, Archbold. He said retired Police Superintendent Alrick Wright taught him to put his “best foot forward”, while Inspector Louis Williams was like a father to him.

Sergeant Delpesche started his prosecuting career at the Family Court in 2002. He was transferred to the Serious Offences Court last year when that court was established.
