Dudus’ lawyers seek new sentencing date today / US seeks top dancehall artiste labelled as 'Dudus' associate

A New York court will today decide whether to grant former Tivoli Gardens don Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke a new sentencing date.

Coke is scheduled to be sentenced next Tuesday. But yesterday his lawyer Stephen H Rosen applied to the court for a new sentencing date.

On August 31 last year Coke pleaded guilty to racketeering and conspiracy charges after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. Coke faces more than 20 years in prison under the agreement. Coke has been incarcerated since June 2010 after waiving his right to an extradition hearing on drug and gunrunning charges.

Another high-ranking Jamaican dancehall star has found himself in trouble with the law. This time, it is a well-known and popular singjay law enforcement officers have labelled an associate of former west Kingston strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, who is currently awaiting sentencing on drug-related charges in the United States.

While a law enforcement officer has confirmed that the Corporate Area-based singjay is being sought in Michigan in the US on drug-related allegations, The Gleaner has learnt that he is wanted on at least two warrants.

The singjay, who is one of the top-ranked artistes in the dancehall and has a number of hits, is also a green card holder.

"He is not the only Jamaican entertainer being sought by the US on drug-related allegations," the officer said.

The latest information comes against the background of a recent statement made by head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, that a number of entertainers have popped up on the police radar and will be arrested soon.

Powell's comment came shortly after the arrest of controversial dancehall star, Adidja Palmer, who goes by the stage name 'Vybz Kartel'.

Murder charges

Palmer is currently before the courts on two murder charges and the police say he has been implicated in at least five other murders.

"We have an interest in at least 10 other members of the entertainment industry, some of whom have been implicated in a number of murders and shootings," Powell told The Gleaner recently.

He did not disclosed the identity of the other entertainers who are being sought, but since then, one other artiste has been arrested and charged.
