The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has dropped all charges against Tambourine Army co-founder Latoya Nugent.

Nugent was charged with three counts of using a computer for malicious communication under the Cybercrimes Act.

She is alleged to have published information on social media accusing several individuals of being sexual predators.

Nugent was charged after some of the individuals made a report to the police.

However, Nugent had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

This morning, in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court, DPP Paula Llewellyn said she would offer no further evidence against Nugent.

She is currently outlining her reasons to the court.
