Grammy-winning dancehall star Beenie Man has been cleared of tax-evasion charges in Jamaica after a judge ruled that the government never informed him of his legal rights.

 

      The artist owed nearly $1 million in overdue taxes, according to Jamaican authorities.

 

      But Judge Owen Parkin dismissed the case Tuesday, ruling evidence showed the entertainer was not informed of his rights when auditors issued their assessment last year.

 

       Beenie Man, whole real name is Anthony Moses Davis, won a Grammy in 2001 for his album “Art and Life.”
