Popular comedian Jookie Jam has reasons to be thanking his lucky stars are he was freed in the Magistrate's Court yesterday.

The comedian, whose real name is Stead Flash, was told by Resident Magistrate Simone Maddix that the Crown failed in its bid to have a prima facie case against him

Flash's lawyer, Christopher Townsend, agreed and told the court that from the onset his client was innocent.

The comedian's appearance in court stems from an incident where persons claimed to have paid over US$60,000 ($5,160,000) to a company in which he was a director. He was charged along with Dericia Smith and Sophia Wilson who are to return to court on December 7.

The court learnt that in September 2009, money was paid to Nu Kru Recruitment Company in Portmore, St Catherine, by persons seeking jobs. It is alleged that they did not get any jobs and the money was not returned.

Still it is hard when people spend their money in that way and there is nothing to show.
