A trial date for ZJ Wah Wa lottery scam case in the United States has been set for September 15.
Wah Wa, whose real name Deon-ville O’Hara, appeared in a North Dakota court on Thursday to answer to the charges. He pleaded not guilty to charges of wire and mail fraud, as well as, money laundering conspiracy.
O’Hara pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Zip Jock was extradited from Florida to North Dakota on May 27. He was picked up by U.S. Marshals on May 4 during a visit to Florida from Jamaica.
Law enforcement sources told Dancehall HipHop that O’Hara helped run a massive lottery scam enterprise based in Jamaica and Florida. He was one of 26 people arrested last month between Florida and Jamaica.
