Dancehall Artiste Aidonia Cleared Of Gun Charges

Aidonia, who has been embroiled in a legal battle for more than a year over gun charges, is now giving thanks as he was cleared of all charges in the Supreme Court in downtown Kingston.

The entertainer, whose real name is Sheldon Lawrence, was last year slapped with several charges ranging from conspiracy to shooting, illegal possession of firearm and shooting with intent stemming from an incident in the Shortwood area of St Andrew in January 2008.

The entertainer’s legal counsel, Valrie Nieta-Robertson, made an application for the charges to be dismissed against her client, after an alleged witness who was injured in the incident did not show to give his testimony and based on the lack of evidence on the part of the prosecution all charges were dropped.

Aidonia’s charges stemmed from a shooting incident in January 2008 in the proximity of Wedcombe Avenue, off Shortwood Road in St Andrew, where several shots were fired and one man was injured.
