First Plea Agreements Signed In Lottery Scam Case

First Plea Agreements Signed In Lottery Scam Case
FARGO, ND -

Three people have agreed to plead guilty in a Jamaican Lottery Scam targeting elderly victims in the Dakotas and elsewhere.

More two-dozen people have been indicted in the federal case being tried in North Dakota. The defendants induced people throughout the United States to send millions of dollars to them to cover fees for lottery winnings.

Shannon O'Connor, James Simpson and Mikael Gillette all signed plea agreements this week to conspiracy charges. They each face a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison.

Court documents show that O'Connor cashed three checks written by an 83-year-old Harvey, North Dakota, widow worth $65,000.

One of the defendants in the case is prominent Jamaican disc jockey Deon-ville O'Hara, also known as ZJ Wah Wa. He has pleaded not guilty.
