Myrie faces charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering after being alleged to have been in a lottery scam that defrauded elderly American citizens of millions of dollars in exchange for promised lottery winnings. The producer has been in police custody since February and faces 30 years in prison on each charge.
However, that July date is merely tentative as a court worker with direct knowledge of the case told the Jamaica Observer Friday that up to 10 cases will be tried on July 13, meaning there is a strong possibility the case might be postponed again.
In the meantime, Myrie’s label, UIM Records is promoting his latest compilation, the Mildew Riddim, which was released in March. The album features the likes of Popcaan, Mavado, Bugle and Blak Diamon.
