Sentencing for Livingston Caine, the juror who was charged with bribing a jury foreman in the 2014 Vybz Kartel murder case, has once again been postponed.

The sentencing was previously postponed last week (March 3) after reports that Caine was hospitalised and March 6 was given as the new sentencing date.

However, when the matter was called, it was revealed that the social inquiry report requested by defence lawyers was not prepared. Caine is expected to return to the Kingston and St Andrew parish court on Wednesday (March 8).

Caine was found guilty of trying to bribe a jury foreman J$500,000 to deliver a not guilty verdict in the Vybz Kartel trial.

Incarcerated dancehall artiste Adidja Palmer, professionally known as Vybz Kartel, was found guilty of the murder of his associate Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

He has been behind bars since his arrest in 2011 and is currently appealing to the Privy Council, Jamaica’s final court of appeal, to have his sentence revoked.
