Tesha Miller Sentencing Delayed ’til 3:00pm


Tesha Miller’s sentencing hearing has been adjourned until 3:00 this afternoon.

The sentencing hearing got underway at 10:30 this morning.

But it’s completion was delayed because two character witnesses for Miller were late in arriving for Court.

Miller’s Attorney, Bert Samuels, had requested the adjournment.

Earlier, a Policeman read Miller’s social enquiry report into the Court record.

The report shows that Miller was born on August 6, 1980.

According to the report, Miller spent 5-years at the Spanish Town High School but left with no CXC passes.

The report says Miller became a welding apprentice shortly after he left High School. He has 5 children.

The sentence hearing began this morning amidst heavy security presence in the Supreme Court.

Police SWAT vehicles were placed on 4 streets which surround the Court.

Tesha Miller was convicted a few weeks ago of accessory to the murder of former JUTC Chairman, Douglas Chambers.

The prosecution’s main witness told the Court that he heard when Miller ordered that Chambers be killed.

Miller had denied the allegations, but he was found guilty by the Jury in a unanimous verdict. The main witness had also testified that Miller is the boss of the Spanish Town-based Klansman Gang.
