Appeal Court reserves judgment in alleged gangster Tesha Miller's case
2013-02-26 16:40:49 | (0 Comments)
The Court of Appeal today reserved its decision in the appeal brought by reputed leader of the Spanish Town-based Clansman gang, Tesha Miller.
In 2011, Miller was sentenced to seven years in prison on a charge of illegal possession of a firearm and 15 years for robbery with aggravation by Justice Carol Lawrence Beswick.
His attorneys Bert Samuel and Charles Ganga-Singh argued that the judge erred as she failed to adequately assess the evidence in the case in particular the identification evidence.
They also contended that the judge was wrong when she rejected Millerís alibi and when she concluded that Miller was well known to the complainant.
The prosecution, represented by deputy director of public prosecutions Maridian Kohler, opposed the application and asked the court to uphold conviction and sentence.
The alleged Clansman gang leader was convicted for robbing a man of his motorcar in December 2010 in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.
Miller testified that he knew nothing about the robbery and said he was not present when it took place.
