(Jamaica Observer) Reggae star Jah Cure was convicted of attempted manslaughter and sentenced to six years in prison in the Netherlands on Tuesday.
The Behind These Prison Walls singer was found not guilty of attempted murder by the court, which rejected his self-defence claim.
“The 43-years old man was sentenced to six years in prison – with credit for time served – for attempted manslaughter. The court finds him not guilty of attempted murder. His claim of self-defence was rejected by the court,” Franklin Wattimena, press officer of the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service, told OBSERVER ONLINE.
Jah Cure’s legal team may choose to appeal the ruling in the Netherlands Court of Appeal.
