Music producer and bleaching advocate '12 Boss' freed of ammunition charge

June 11, 2024

St Catherine music producer and skin-bleaching advocate Dwight '12 Boss' Johnson has been freed from an ammunition charge in the St Catherine Parish Court.

The 34-year-old from Lime Tree Grove in Spanish Town was found not guilty of possession of ammunition following a five-day trial. 

Parish Judge Kayon Lamey, who presided over the case, acquitted Johnson after finding inconsistencies in the testimonies of the two police officers, the main witnesses. 

The court found that they were not credible.  

Johnson was taken into custody in October 2022 after the police reportedly found a 5.56 cartridge and a 9mm cartridge in a dresser, as well as a 9mm cartridge on a desk inside his home.

The police were conducting a joint operation with members of the Jamaica Defence Force in the Lime Tree Grove community on October 15, 2022.

Johnson, when cautioned, reportedly told the police, “police and gunman did have shoot-out bout three years ago and me find dem out a road and put dem inna me drawer, de one inna de studio me nuh know bout it.”

Attorney-at-Law John Jacobs represented Johnson.
