Jah Cure for Sumfest 2007 ?

The town of Montego Bay is flooded with rumours about Siccaturie ‘Jah Cure’ Alcock release from the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre otherwise known as the General Penitentiary this year. The earliest possible release date for Jah Cure is July 28th, 2007.Commissioner of Correction Major Richard Reese, confirmed that “as long as he does not commit any breaches, he should be released on this date.” "Jah Cure's earliest date of release (EDR) is July 28, 2007 and his latest release date (LDR) in July 18, 2011." Jah Cure was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment on April 26, 1999, for two counts of rape, robbery with aggravation, and illegal possession of firearm. Two years ago, Jah Cure was buffeted by an avalanche of bad press arising from an interview conducted by a Gleaner reporter with his victim. Women's groups were particularly offended. One prominent entertainment female personality actually commented: "Why is it that Jah Cure who is a criminal is applauded by members of this society for a heinous crime committed against women? Jah Cure must serve his full sentence, I don't care what he sings, he has not apologized, and any man who could do such a vicious act deserves to remain in prison for a long time. Where do people get off with this 'Free Up Jah Cure!" foolishness?!" Jah Cure is a popular controversial figure whose monster hit include True Reflections and Longing For’ two reggae anthems of 2005 and 2006. His release is eagerly awaited promoters and producers in the entertainment fraternity. But will he be at Sumfest 2007 ? Do you think he has served enough time and should be released?

  1. Absolutely not... the man deserves to live in a cage.

    Tell me, how much longer a sentence do you suppose he would have had if he had committed the following crimes:

    2 counts of conspiracy
    3 counts of fraud
    1 count of kidnapping
    2 counts of false imprisonment
    3 counts of rape
    2 counts of sodomy
    2 counts of drugging (to incompacitate)
    1 count of video voyeurism

    This is what Jim Dickinson did to trusting female(s) in 1962. The incidents have been kept under a veil of secrecy for 45 years.
