Popcaan Assault Trial Set For June 5

Earlier this week Urban Islandz reported that Popcaan was slapped with assault charges after an alleged incident involving a police officer.

Now we’ve learned that Popcaan, born Andre Sutherland, will go on trial on June 5 in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court. But given the reputation of the Jamaican justice system, the trial will probably be delayed and drawn out.
