Jamaican Artistes Sevana and Jah Cure On The Wrong Side Of The Law

Written by: Lesandra Scott.

Sevana and Jah Cure have unfortunately found themselves on the wrong side of the law both at home and abroad. Songstress, Sevana, faces a ‘death by wrongful driving’ charge; and Call On Me crooner, Jah Cure, is staring at almost four charges: attempted murder, attempted manslaughter, aggravated assault, and the possibility of attempted aggravated assault.

Sevana, the artiste whose voice powers singles such as Mango, Nobody Man and Bit Too Shy, while driving in Westmoreland, Jamaica, last May, lost control of her car and ran into another. The driver of the other car, Orda Cordiel, was commuted to the hospital where she, soon after on May 30th, passed away. On June 1st, Sevana whose real name is Anna Blake, was charged.

On January 4th, Judge Steve Walters announced that the trial is set for October 31st, and with no conditions, she’s been slapped with $400, 000 bail. At the upcoming October hearing to be held at the Westmoreland Circuit Court, Sevana will have to answer to the charge laid against her for death by dangerous driving. Her legal representation, Attorney-at-law, Yushaine Morgan, in the meantime, made a request that she be allowed to travel as she is a performing artiste. In this way, the In.Digg.Nation artiste will be able to travel for shows to support her career, he successfully argued.

Meanwhile, in the Netherlands, Siccaturie Alcock familiarly known as Jah Cure is being charged for attempted murder involving concert promoter, Nicardo Blake, also known as Papa. Since the October 1st incident, he’s been held in a detention center outside of Amsterdam.

The Longing For artiste who would have spent 103 days behind Dutch bars on January 12th, has a pro forma hearing to determine whether his incarceration will be extended or dropped.

“At the pro forma hearing, the prosecutor will reveal the current status of the investigation and whether the prosecutor considers it necessary for the suspect to remain in custody for a period of up to 90 days. It will then be up to the court to decide whether the remand order will be extended or not,” explained Franklin Wattimena, the press officer with The Netherlands Public Prosecution Service in Amsterdam.

“The pre-trial arrest can also be cancelled by court, whereupon the suspect will be released. It can also be ‘suspended’, whereupon the suspect will be released subject to certain conditions.” Wattimena also explained.

The fate of these two musicians hang in the air, of course, stay tuned to this space for more developments!
