At the Westmoreland Circuit Court today, Sevana pleaded guilty to the charge of death by dangerous driving. The reggae artiste appeared before the court this morning regarding a 2021 car crash which killed a female motorist. Now, she awaits her sentencing, which will be handed down on November 17.
Having pleaded guilty, Sevana, born Anna-Sharé Blake, could spend up to five years behind bars.
Attorney-at-law Everton Dewar, who represented Sevana, refrained from commenting on the plea because it is still a legal matter that is being considered by a judge and is therefore not open for public discussion.
According to reports, Sevana and the female motorist, Ordia Cordiel, were driving along the Scott Cove main road in Whitehouse, Westmoreland, in opposite directions when they crashed. Cordiel, who sustained severe injuries, later died at the Black River Hospital. Additional reports from the Jamaica Observer state that Sevana’s brother was injured in the collision.
Sevana is a 30-year-old singer, model, and actress. She was previously a contestant on Digicel’s Rising Star when she entered the singing competition as part of a girl group called SLR. Her most popular songs include Mango, If You Only Knew, and Man Down.
