Jamaican recording artist Shawn Siva Storm, real name Shawn Campbell, incarcerated with his mentor Vybz Kartel, rejected a 3 years sentence discount and guilty plea to sell out Kartel.

Shawn Storm’s lawyer Lorne said his client, known by the stage name ‘Shawn Storm’, was not asked to give any evidence against his co-accusedbut refused the deal because he was not part of any common design to kill Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

“I was approached by the prosecutor who made the offer. I discussed it with my client and he said there was no fact. He was not part of any plan to kill anybody so he refused. He said there was no fact. As an attorney I have to follow my client’s instructions,” Lorne told the press.

Llewellyn confirmed the story.

“I was told about it by the prosecutor, Jeremy Taylor. He said he approached his attorney with the offer,” the DPP said.

If he had accepted the offer Campbell would have served a three-year prison sentence.Campbell, who is also called ‘Sivva’, was last Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment by Justice Lennox Campbell for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. He must serve 25 years before he can be considered for early release.

All the others co-accused were given life sentences, with Vybz Kartel  being eligible for parole after he has served 35 years, while André St John and Kahira Jones will be eligible for parole after they have served 30 years and 25 years in prison, respectively.



“He refused because he maintains that he was never involved in any murder and to take that offer would have signaled that he was guilty of participating in murder. I even discussed it with his mother and she said she was glad he refused,” Lorne said.

Campbell was sentenced based on the premise of common design in law, which states that even if a person did not actually commit murder he can be found guilty of participating in the act if he did not voice his objection to the act or acted as a lookout person. Evidence was presented in court that Campbell sent text messages to his girlfriend, informing her that someone was going to be killed.

The prosecution also argued that Campbell took Williams and the prosecution’s star witness, Lamar ‘Wee’ Chow, to a house owned by Vybz Kartel at Swallowfield in Havendale, St Andrew knowing that they would be killed.

The court was told that Campbell had repeatedly urged Williams and Chow to be calm, after they began acting skittish during a trip from Portmore to Havendale in a taxi driven by a man known only as ‘Need For Speed’. 

Chow managed to escape without being harmed and later testified that he saw Williams’ motionless body lying in the living room of the house and Jones holding what appeared to be a block over him. His evidence weighed heavily on the jury and helped the prosecution to secure a guilty verdict.

Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm as well as Jones and St John were taken to the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre, popularly known as GP, after the sentencing on Thursday, where they were processed.

They were then taken back to the Horizon Adult Correctional Centre, where they had been held before and during the trial, and will be assigned to maximum security correctional facilities later on, which will likely be either that at Tower Street, or the St Catherine Adult Correctional Centre in Spanish Town.

Vybz Kartel and co-accused will  appeal the verdict on several grounds, including facts like that the evidence was tampered with by police and that they were victims of a plot to sink Vybz Kartel, who is not well liked by some sections of society for his outlandish lyrics and gangster image.
