Smith pleaded guilty to the charges in December 2022.

Gangster Lesberth Smith was today sentenced to six years in prison.

Smith last December pleaded guilty to being a member of a criminal gang and participating in a criminal gang.

Sentencing was handed down in St Catherine Circuit Court today by Justice Bertram Morrison who noted that the 25-year-old benefited from his guilty plea. 

The charges against Smith stemmed from a 2018 investigation by detectives from the St Catherine police division into the activities of the Sparta Gang in Old Harbour.
