“We don't know yet if there will be an appeal. We have to discuss that first,” Kuijpers told the Jamaica Observer on Tuesday. Both the Grammy-nominated singer and prosecutors can appeal to the Court of Appeal within two weeks, if they disagree with the court's ruling. According to Kuijpers, in the absence of an appeal, Jah Cure would have to serve four years before being released. “But the time he was already in prison will be deducted, of course,” he said."
