Kartel’s Lawyer Valrie Neita Robertson had stated that the jury was contaminated and the case was prejudiced by media coverage during the trial.
Vybz Kartel will not be eligible for parole until after 35 years, Andre St. John will be imprisoed for 30 years before he will be considered for parole and the other co-accused will be considered for parole after 25 years each.
