Tommy Lee Sparta will be staying in Jamaica for a very long time.
The “Uncle Demon” deejay was stripped of his travel documents and barred from traveling outside of the island when he appeared in the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court last week Tuesday.
Tommy Lee, born Leroy Russell, made his first court hearing last week Tuesday since being charged for breaching the Anti-Lottery Act, known as the Lottery Scam.
Lee was released on a $400,000 bond.
A Magistrate judge ordered the deejay to turn over his travel documents and also notified all ports that the deejay should not leave the island.
But Tommy Lee’s attorney, Burt Samuels, insisted that the 26-year-old dancehall artiste is no scammer.
“Mr Russell, who is known by the stage name Tommy Lee Sparta, has one occupation and that is being an international recording artiste and this can be proven,” Samuels said. “He is not a scammer.”
Tommy Lee returns to court on April 3.
