KINGSTON, Jamaica — Reputed Klansman don Tesha Miller has been released from police custody without charge following a ruling by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith earlier today that he be charged or released by 4:00 pm.

The order was made following a habeas corpus application by Attorney Able Don Foote in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court this morning.

Miller, who was being held at the Hunts Bay Police Lock-up, was released at 5:30 pm.

He has been in custody since his deportation from The Bahamas and was on Tuesday fined $100 for making a false declaration to Jamaican immigration officials.


Miller was sentenced in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court after pleading guilty to one count of making a false declaration in which the court heard that he made a false declaration to immigration officials at the Norman Manley International Airport on April 4, by signing his name as “Marlon W” on a document on which he acknowledged that his name was Tesha Miller.

He remained in custody as the police said they still had an interest in him.
