Tesha Miller Trial Delayed, Jury To Be Polled To Determine Bias


The alleged leader of the Spanish Town, St. Catherine-based, Clans Man gang, Tesha Miller, will return to court on Wednesday to answer charges of being an accessory before and after the fact of murder.

Miller’s trial was set to get underway today.

But it was delayed when the court accepted an application from his attorney, Bert Samuels, to poll the jury.

Mr. Samuels argued the poll is necessary due to the publicity generated around the case.

In April, Miller filed a lawsuit against Television Jamaica.

He is claiming damages from a March 19, 2019, broadcast, which he says falsely, wrongfully and maliciously characterized him.

Miller was charged last year, for being an accessory before and after the fact of murder in relation to the killing of then managing director of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company, Douglas Chambers, in April 2008.
