February is Reggae Month, Bob Marley & Dennis Brown's birth Month

Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta charged in lottery scam probe


Popular Dancehall artist, Tommy Lee Sparta has been charged with breaching the anti-lottery act in connection with an alleged lottery scam he has engaged in.

The deejay, whose real name is Leroy Russell was charged Friday afternoon along with four other individuals in relation to the alleged scam. He was granted JA$400,000 bail and is expected to appear in the Half-Way-Tree Court to answer the charge, according to his attorney, Bert Samuels.

Tommy Lee Sparta was taken into police custody Feb. 3rd. In a report, the Jamaica Constabulary Force stated the investigation was triggered following a routine traffic stop that day in New Kingston after a driver had violated the Road Traffic Act and gave fake identification after not possessing a driver’s license.

Subsequent reports say police then raided a St. Andrew residence occupied by the deejay, where they seized documents that included lists of American citizens and other material allegedly used in the scam. Lee and six others were taken into custody as well as the vehicle stopped earlier that day.

Lottery scams have become a topic of contention in Jamaica in recent years, with regular citizens as well as politicians implicated in investigations pertaining to scamming. In 2013, American lawmakers demanded that Jamaicans implicated in lottery scamming defrauding U.S. citizens be extradited to their country to stand trial, calling out Jamaican law makers in the process for not acting quickly enough to dissuade alleged scams.

Once a prized protégé of Dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel, Tommy Lee Sparta burst on the scene since the turn of the decade with hits such as Warn Dem, Psycho, Uncle Demon and Some Bwoy. He is still recovering from a near-fatal car accident he was involved in last November as he was traveling to his 26th birthday party.
