Jamaica: Gang leader Uchence Wilson sentenced to 26 years in prison

Gang leader Uchence Wilson, whose criminal outfit netted hundreds of millions of dollars from illegal activities across sections of the island, has been sentenced to 26 years in prison.

Chief Justice Bryan Sykes handed down the sentence in the Home Circuit Court on Wednesday.

Wilson was sentenced to 11 years on all of the counts against him, including leading a criminal organisation. He will, however, spend 11 years in prison as the sentences will run concurrently.

The other eight members of Wilson’s gang received sentences ranging from four to eight years.

Odeen Smith, who was convicted of being a part of a criminal gang and robbery with aggravation was sentenced to four years for each, with Lanworth Geohagen getting six years for being a part of a criminal gang and robbery with aggravation.
