KINGSTON, Jamaica — Reverend Al Miller's appeal against his gun-related conviction was on Monday postponed in the Court of Appeal.
Miller, who heads the Fellowship Tabernacle in Kingston, is appealing his conviction and fine of $80,000 on a charge of negligence surrounding the loss of his licenced firearm.
When the case was called up for hearing Miller's legal team asked the court for additional time.
A new hearing date is to be set, the matter is expected to be heard before the December end of the court term.
Miller was convicted last October in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court and slapped with a fine of $80,000 or three months' imprisonment.
He paid the fine.
The clergyman was arrested and charged last year February after he reported that his firearm was stolen during a stop with his daughter to pick plums in Grants Pen, St Andrew.
He told police he left the firearm in a pouch in the floor of his vehicle and when he returned it was missing.
