Dutch Prosecutors Appeal Jah Cure’s Murder Acquittal
Written by Rika C on April 7, 2022
Jah Cure could get a lot more years behind bars if Dutch prosecutors have their way.
Jah Cure might be facing more jail time if the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service has its way. The singer is presently serving his 6 years sentence for attempted manslaughter of a Dutch promoter in October of 2021.
He was found guilty on one of the two charges brought against him by prosecutors. On March 22, Jah Cure was convicted of attempted manslaughter based on evidence that included incriminating voice notes and text messages threatening to stab and kill the promoter thousands of times and an eyewitness account.
However, the judge had found that there was insufficient evidence proving he was guilty of the attempted murder charge and only sentenced him to the lesser offense of attempted manslaughter.
The attempted murder acquittal is being appealed by Dutch prosecutors who want the singer to spend more than six years behind bars.
