(Jamaica Observer) Dancehall deejay Tommy Lee Sparta is scheduled to return to court on October 13 to start trial for Lotto scamming charges.
The trial was scheduled to begin in the Home Circuit Court on Monday, but was postponed because no courtroom was available.
Tommy Lee, whose given name is Leroy Russell, along with three others, were charged jointly in February 2014 with suspected of breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transaction) (Special Provisions) Act, 2013.
According to the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit — the police's information arm — a motorist was stopped by law men in New Kingston after breaching the Road Traffic Act. The driver, who did not have a driver's licence in his possession, gave an identity which turned out to be fictitious.
