Sizzla Won Profanity Court Appeal

Sizzla won a court appeal of his profanity sentence in Jamaica on Wednesday and will pay a small fine instead of going to jail for using foul language


Reggae star Sizzla, whose real name is Miguel Collins, was in last February convicted after a court heard evidence that he repeatedly used profanity during a reggae show a month earlier. Due to that fact, he was charged with using profanity on stage under the Town and Community Act, a British colonial-era public order law that prohibits indecent dress or expression.

The court then sentenced him to 15 days in prison after he refused to perform 20 hours of community service. In fact, the Jamaican performer can now feel relieved as the Court of Appeal has ruled him to pay a fine of just U.S. $32.79 (J$2,000) instead of serving time or going to jail for using foul language at a performance.
