Dudus appears in court with boosted legal team

| 08/09/2010

(Jamaica Observer): US Judge Robert P Patterson has set 16 Nov for Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke’s next court appearance when the former Tivoli Gardens don appeared before him in a Manhattan. Coke has bolstered his defence team with high-profile attorneys Frank Doddato and Steve Rosen. They now join two other prominent lawyers — Steve Zissou and Elizabeth Macedonio, who were hired last month. Coke appeared in good spirits, although one of his attorneys described as "uncivilised", the conditions under which Coke has been held for over two months. The accused drug lord has been in custody in New York since June after he waived his right to an extradition hearing in Kingston on drugs and weapon charges.
