Wah Wa was arrested earlier this month in South Florida by U.S. Marshals and held without bail. He has since been charged with three counts of wire fraud and money laundering.

Deon-ville O’Hara is among 26 individuals charged in the lottery scam ring that authorities say operated between Jamaica and the United States.

Last year November he was held by customs officials at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay after officials found US$105,000 in his possession. Officials have since linked that large quantity of cash to the lottery scam scheme.

Deon-ville O’Hara has agreed to be extradited from Florida to North Dakota. He is facing up to 20 years in a federal prison if found guilty.

In a statement sent to Urban Islandz, Zip FM manager D’Adra Williams says she is allowing the law to take its course.

“We will allow the due process of the law to take place, where persons are given the benefit of the doubt and presumed innocent until proven guilty, our employees will be extended the same courtesy,” the statement reads.
