The state witness in the One Don Gang trial on Thursday disclosed in the Home Circuit Court that two members of the criminal network attempted to bribe him into lying on the stand. The witness, who is a former don, made the disclosure during cross-examination by attorney Alexander Shaw. Mr. Shaw, who is representing the lone female accused, Stephanie Christie, asked the witness whether he demanded money from his client while she was in police custody. The witness disclosed that one of the defendants, Lamar Simpson, and another man he identified as “Termite” offered to pay him to testify in court that he did not know them. The witness said he was asked to indicate how much money he wanted. The court was also told that Stephanie Christie is a childhood friend of the alleged leader of the One Don Gang, Andre “Blackman” Bryan. Earlier in the trial, the witness testified that Miss Christie was an aggressor and served as the liaison between members of the gang and the police. The witness also testified that he collected money from another defendant, Fabian Johnson, when Miss Christie went to purchase an illegal firearm. While challenging allegations of Miss Christie‘s role and participation in the gang, Mr. Shaw said his client attended church on Sundays and the only meeting she was a part of was a community meeting. Prosecution awaiting statement from police The prosecution in the One Don Gang trial is awaiting a statement from the police regarding a claim that its second witness was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. During cross-examination on Tuesday, attorney Lyndel Wellesly told the witness that the only reason he volunteered to testify against the 33 defendants was to save himself. Mr. Wellesley told the court that the witness became a person of interest after his belongings were found in a car after two of his cronies were shot and killed by the police. According to Mr. Wellesley, the witness appeared in court on February 17, 2020. The witness denied Mr. Wellesley’s claim. Earlier in the trial, the witness told the Home Circuit Court that he decided to testify against the alleged gangsters to save Jamaica and put an end to the gang’s activities.
