TESHA MILLER, the reputed former leader of the Spanish Town-based Klansman gang, will next week commence efforts in the Court of Appeal to overturn his 15-year gun and robbery sentence of April 2011.
Millier was sentenced in the High Court Division of the Gun Court to seven years' imprisonment for illegal possession of a firearm and 15 years for robbery with aggravation.
He is serving 15 years as the sentences are to run concurrently.
Miller was apprehended in December 2010 in connection with a stolen motor vehicle. His arrest sparked a demonstration by residents in the hotbed community of De La Vega City in Spanish Town.
His arrest also reportedly led to bloody infighting within the Klansman gang for the leadership of the criminal network. The feud left more than a dozen persons dead.
Miller had also faced a charge of murder in the Home Circuit Court for the April 2004 killing of John Haughton on Spanish Town Road but the charge was dropped due to insufficient evidence.
Prior to that, Miller was set free of the January 2005 triple murders of Oraine Jackson, Jeffery Johnson and Nicole Allen in Braeton, St Catherine. He had absconded bail on the murder charges and fled to the United States in that same year.
He was held by the US authorities in October 2006, charged with re-entering that country illegally and subsequently deported.
