The Jamaican justice system is in pretty bad shape, apparently.
Ninja Man, who was convicted of a murder last month, was expected to learn his fate on Friday (Dec 15).
However, due to disorganization of his defense team and lack of resource by lawmen, the veteran entertainer’s sentencing hearing was postponed to Monday (Dec 18).
The sentencing for Ninja Man was delayed as a result of a handcuff shortage facing police officers who were to escort the artist along with other accused/prisoners to the courtroom.
The Dancehall deejay, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, was eventually brought to the courtroom but the attorney representing his co-accused Dennis Clayton was reportedly late for court, and as a result the matter was postponed.
On November 20, Nonja Man was found guilty of the 2009 murder of Ricardo “Ricky Trooper” Johnson.
His son Jahneil, and the other man, Clayton, were also found guilty.
