Dancehall entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta is a free man, after being released from the Horizon Remand Centre in Kingston Thursday morning.

Tommy Lee, whose given name is Leroy Russell Junior, was sentenced to three years for firearm related offences in March 2021.

He was arrested on December 14, 2020, after the motor vehicle he was driving was stopped by the police on Holborn Road in St. Andrew.

He was searched and a nine millimetre pistol with 18 rounds of ammunition was found in his waistband.

The 35-year-old Montego Bay native pleaded guilty to all charges.
