Lil’ Baby’s ex-girlfriend Jayda Cheaves is to leave Jamaica on Wednesday (September 29).

Cheaves and her entourage were to leave two days earlier but were detained after firearms and ammunition were found in their possession.

Cheaves and Gregory Wright who is a member of her entourage appeared in the Western Regional Gun Court in St. James.

The duo pleaded guilty to illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

“They were fined this morning in the Regional Western Court for the illegal procession of firearm and ammunition,” said Micheal Hemmings who represents Wright.

The two were subsequently sentenced to pay $300,000JMD each or 12 months jail time for ammunition charge and $500,000JMD each or 12 months jail time for the illegal weapons charge.

“They have paid the fines, so they are free to go,” added Hemmings.
