A radio disc jockey who was accused of stealing millions of dollars from the
wife of the late music icon, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, has been found guilty.
Lou Gooden was convicted for defrauding Norma Dodd and her husband's company,
Jamaica Recording and Publishing Studio Limited, formerly "Studio One", of more
than three million dollars.
 Gooden was scheduled to be sentenced Friday, in the Corporate Area Criminal
Court, but the hearing was aborted, due to the absence of his attorney. He's now
to be sentenced on June 7.
Gooden was charged in 2008, following investigations into allegations of fraud
at the Studio One recording company. Investigators reported that between 2006
and 2008, Gooden, who was employed as a bearer to Mrs Dodd, forged her
signature.
 He then submitted documents to the bank with her signature, ordering the
institution to release company funds to him.
The fraud was uncovered by the company in July 2008, and the Fraud Squad was
called in.
Investigations led to the arrest of Gooden, who is now in custody awaiting
sentence.
