Vybz Kartel’s sentencing postponed until April 3


Dancehall superstar, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer and his three co-accused found guilty of the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams will have to wait another week for sentencing after it was postponed on Thursday.


Kartel, alongside his three co-accused, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre ‘Mad Suss’ St. John arrived at the Supreme Court in downtown Kingston late Thursday morning, with Kartel wearing a black shirt and navy blue pants. They arrived to a much smaller crowd to the one that showed up on the day of Kartel’s conviction March 13th, despite claims that fans of the deejay were set to stage a major protest outside the court, calling for a retrial. As the court assembled, he then went to court wearing a dark blue suit, blue shirt and tie, looking calm as he awaited his fate.

Despite accepting the jury’s guilty verdict, Kartel’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson says his client continues to maintain his innocence. Furthermore, when asked to make his final plea, Kartel opted not to beg for mercy in an effort to lighten the sentence.

Minutes later, however, Justice Lennox Campbell pushed back the sentencing to April 3 as to facilitate written submissions from defence lawyers regarding sentencing guidelines, according to Nationwide Radio. Justice Campbell also said he would like to hear from a member of Williams’ family, though the director of public prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn has said that may not be appropriate.

The family was put in protective custody immediately following the verdict, amidst reports that a bounty was on the heads of members of Williams’ family.
