Accused Jamaican Drug Lord Christopher "Dudus" Coke Pleads Not Guilty in NYC

Aol News "Suspected Jamaican drug baron Christopher 'Dudus' Coke pleaded not guilty today to charges of trafficking drugs and guns in a New York court.

Coke, 41, was extradited from Jamaica on Thursday, two days after being captured, according to the BBC. Attempts to capture him last month led to running gun battles in Kingston, Jamaica, and left more than 70 people dead.

Coke pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana and cocaine. He also pleaded not guilty to engaging in a firearms-trafficking conspiracy. If found guilty of the drug-trafficking charge, he could be sent to jail for life."
