Jamaican Drug Lord Faces Sentencing in U.S. Case

Despite facing 23 years in U.S. prison for trafficking, gun smuggling and racketeering, the infamous Jamaican drug kingpin Christopher "Dudus" Coke asked the judge for leniency ahead of his sentencing.

"I implemented a lot of social programs for the residents of my community — programs that teach them about self-empowerment," he wrote on his behalf.
