Tommy Lee Sparta will be joining Vybz Kartel, Ninjaman and other dancehall artistes in prison.

Leroy Russell better known as Tommy Lee Sparta, was today sentenced to three years imprisonment for illegal possession of firearm and two years for illegal possession of ammunition.

He had pleaded guilty to the offenses.

The sentences are however to run concurrently, so he will only serve three years.

Tommy Lee was arrested last December after he was found with a firearm along Holborn Road in New Kingston.
