(Jamaica Observer) Donahue Martin, attorney-at-law representing Tommy Lee Sparta, is denying allegations of wrongdoing by his client with regards to a Glock 9mm firearm seized from the embattled entertainer in December 2020 by the police.
“I would deny any other involvement in relation to that firearm. We took responsibility, the ultimate responsibility for the mistake of having it on us on that day. We plead guilty and we’re remorseful about that,” Martin told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.
“Whatever happened to that firearm before it came in our possession, we can’t speak to it; apart from saying that we deny any allegation of wrongdoing. We certainly were not involved in any act of murder or shooting,” he continued.
Tommy Lee Sparta is currently serving a three-year sentence for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition. He was sentenced on March 24.
Yesterday, the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), through its information arm — Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) — issued a statement that after ballistics testing, the firearm seized from the dancehall artiste in December 2020 has been linked to two murders and three incidence of shootings in the Corporate Area.
