Dancehall Artiste Tommy Lee Sparta.

After being held with an illegal gun last December, Tommy Lee Sparta whose given name is Leroy Russel was remanded in custody. He will return to court on February 3 to answer to the charges of illegal gun and possession of ammunition.

The Spartan Soldier’s case was heard last Wednesday in the Gun Court Division and it took place in private with a Judge, excluding media houses and the public.

Tommy Lee Sparta is being represented by Donahue Martin, along with Queen’s Counsel Tom Tavares-Finson. Police state that he is also the subject of other criminal investigations. This was a specialized operation intercepting the artiste on Holborn Road, in St Andrew and finding the illegal 9mm pistol which contained an extended magazine with 18 rounds of ammunition.
