(Jamaica Observer) Entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta remains in police lock-up after he appeared via Zoom in an in camera session of the Gun Court division of the Home Circuit Court in Kingston on Wednesday. The case was rescheduled for March 24.
Tommy Lee Sparta is charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
The Jamaica Observer was unable to reach his attorneys — Donahue Martin and Tom Tavares-Finson, QC— for comment.
However, in a previous interview, Martin explained how the process works.
“Generally, when matters are first before the Gun Court, especially in recent times, the judge would make a Finger Print Order. A Finger Print Order just essentially means you give your fingerprint to the police and, from that, the police can indicate whether a particular individual has previous convictions or if they have other cases pending, or if they have a pending bench warrant out for them. That is the purpose of the Finger Print Order,” he said.
