Zebra gets 30-yr sentence for rape & buggery

Dancehall artiste Zebra, whose given name Garfield Vassell, was sentenced to 30 years in prison at hard labour in the St. Catherine Circuit Court Friday morning.

On Tuesday, the court found Vassell guilty of the rape and buggery of a 14-year old girl.

He was sentenced to 20 years on the rape charge and 10 years on the buggery charge.

The sentences are to run consecutively.    

Zebra was previously convicted on a rape charge in 2002 and sentenced to eight years at hard labour.

He was released in July last year.

Prior to that in 2001, he was sentenced to three-and-a-half years imprisonment at hard labour after being found guilty of two counts of assault with intent to rape.
