No counsel for Dudus


Dudus ALMOST ONE month after he was extradited to the United States to answer drug and gun charges, alleged crime boss Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke has still not settled on legal representation.

Coke, who was represented by two of Jamaica’s top criminal lawyers when he appeared in court locally, is still being assisted by a state-appointed attorney in the US as he goes over scores of damning statements to be used against him during the trial.

These include the statements of nine unnamed co-conspirators, identified in the court documents as cooperating witnesses one to nine (‘CW-1’ to ‘CW-9’).

Alleged co-conspirator, CW-1, claims in his affidavit that he is a Jamaican living in New York, who has already pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to engage in firearms trafficking.
