Entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta has been freed by the Home Circuit Court of lottery scamming-related charges.

His co-accused, O’Brian Smith, was also freed.

This comes after the presiding judge upheld a no-case submission made by their lawyer, Ernest Smith.

Both men were charged with possession of identity information and unlawful use of premises.

The prosecution had argued that the men were involved in lottery scamming.

It was alleged that in February 2014, the police raided a house in the Kingston 5 area, where lottery-scamming paraphernalia was found.

Detectives had alleged that they found a hidden file on a laptop belonging to the deejay containing the personal information of several US residents.

In his submissions, Smith argued that the Crown failed to prove that the accused men were involved in lottery scamming.

He argued that the prosecution did not prove that the gadgets in question were in the sole possession of either or both of the accused.
