Four of the 33 defendants in the One Don Gang trial have been acquitted of being part of a criminal organisation. 
 
Damaine Elliston, Rushane Williams, Revaldo Hylton and Owen Ormsby were freed on Thursday morning after the prosecution told the court there was insufficient evidence to prove that they were a part of the criminal network.
 
Mr. Elliston was freed of two counts in relation to his alleged participation in two murders. 
 
Additionally, Mr. Hylton and Mr. Williams were freed of murder in relation to the deaths of two men who were killed in Spanish Town, St. Catherine. 
 
Mr. Hylton was also found not guilty in relation to his alleged participation in a murder and arson in Twickenham Park, St. Catherine, in which a couple was killed and their house set ablaze.
 
Conspiracy and murder charges against Mr. Ormsby were dismissed.
 
Attorney Kymani Brydson, who represented Mr. Ormsby, later told reporters that the prosecution did the honourable thing in admitting there was insufficient evidence against his client.
 
"Mr. Ormsby is happy and I think this is testament to the fact that the judicial system does ensure fairness and objectivity in trial processes," he noted.
 
The alleged members of the One Don Gang are on trial after being accused of a range of murders, conspiracies to murder, extortion, and arson throughout St. Catherine from January 1, 2015 to June 30, 2019.
