God Is Standing By singer George Nooks is today giving God thanks for vindicating him after he was found not guilty on Tuesday of a cocaine possession charge at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.
“The judge said that there were several inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case and, as a consequence, Nooks was found not guilty,” said Nooks lawyer Queen’s Counsel Tom Tavares-Finson, who was a member of the defence team that also included attorney Donahue Martin.
“God is good all the time. I rode out the storm, and I will keep riding out my storm because I know God is standing by. No matter the circumstances, God is always there for me,” said Nooks.
The 56-year-old entertainer was arrested two years ago, on Friday, May 5, 2017. Police reported at the time that about 9:00 pm, lawmen were on operation in St Andrew when they observed Nooks acting in a manner that aroused their suspicion.
The cops reported that Nooks was accosted and a bag he was carrying searched; the bag reportedly was found to contain just under two ounces of cocaine.
