George Nooks: Lawyer cites inconsistency in case

by May 17th, 2017

The attorney for entertainer George Nooks has submitted that the charge against his client should be dismissed, citing conflict over the circumstances under which Nooks was arrested.

The Gospel singer made his first appearance in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court this morning, on a charge of possession of cocaine.  Police say he was held with under two ounces of cocaine.

However, Mr Tavares Finson is contending that there is a major inconsistency in the police account of the circumstances under which his client was arrested and charged.

According to the attorney, the police investigator has reported that the entertainer was arrested at the Duhaney Park Plaza in St Andrew.

However he says head of the narcotics division Senior Superintendent Mcarthur Sutherland reported that Nooks was arrested in the Widcombe Heights St Andrew community where he lives.

George Nooks, who was arrested on May 5 is to return to court on June 28.
