Kartel juror will have to face trial soon

Livingston Cain, the juror on trial for allegedly trying to bribe other jurors in the Vybz Kartel murder trial, will have to face a trial in the near future. 

Parish judge Maxine Ellis made a ruling to that effect last week in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.  Cain had been arrested at the Supreme Court in 2014, minutes after jurors in the murder trial voted 10:1 to convict the popular entertainer, his protege Shawn Storm, and two other men for killing Clive 'Lizard' Williams.


At that time, he was charged with six counts of attempting to pervert the course of justice.


During his first court appearance, Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn charged that Cain offered the jury foreman $500,000 to convince other jurors to find Kartel and his three co-accused not guilty.


According to Llewellyn, the foreman recorded Cain claiming that she the foreman wielded significant influence over the other jurors.


But Cain has denied attempting to bribe other jurors.


He also testified that he believed that prosecutors had not presented enough evidence against the accused.


Cain said he formed this view based on the testimony of the main prosecution witness, who indicated that he was in Havendale, St Andrew, at the time Williams was killed, although phone records placed him in Portmore, St Catherine.


He also testified that other jurors were "fooling around" in the jury room and were not taking the case seriously.
