Shabdon to Appear in Court on December 1 to Face Triple Murder Charge

Donahue Martin, attorney-at-law representing music producer Linval “Shabdon” Thompson Jr. blamed lawmen for his client’s absence at court on Monday, November 28. He stated that his client’s negligence in not attending the scheduled hearing was due to failure of him not being delivered to the courthouse.

Currently, Shabdon is in the custody of the police in relation to a triple murder. He was initially arrested in June 2022 and accused of committing the act on Saturday, May 25, 2022, on Marl Road, Rose Heights, St. James. He is scheduled to make an appearance on Thursday, December 1 in the St. James Parish Court.

In relation to more recent charges, lawyer Martin stated that the authorities who were entrusted with the task of taking Shabdon to court were remiss in their duties. The producer is fixed to stand trial on the charges of breaching the Corruption Prevention Act.

Documents presented to the court in October outlined that Shabdon and his co-defendant, Romario “BMR” Scott, were both accosted and charged after being found with an illegal weapon and ammunition during a routine traffic stop by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) in Old Harbour, St. Catherine.

Shabdon was subsequently acquitted of these charges, but was later accused of trying to bribe a police officer. The follow-up claims state that he proposed to bribe a lawman a sum of $2 million to remove a firearm from his vehicle (a grey Mercedes-Bez) before it was searched.
