Shocking News: Buju found Guilty
Buju Banton found guilty

Buju Banton found guilty

Many Caribbean people, reggae fans, and probably all fans of Buju Banton, received shocking news on Tuesday (Feb 22,2010) evening: The jurors returned a guilty verdict on 3 of the 4 charges, after about 11 hours of deliberation.

From Grammy to Prison

Buju put on one of the greatest shows in South Florida only a month ago, then won the grammy awards just last Sunday.  Things were looking up.  Many expected a not guilty verdict.

Found Guilty on Three Charges

Buju, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was found guilty on the following charges:

1. conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine,

2. possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense,

3. using the wires to facilitate a drug trafficking offense.

The fourth charge,  attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, was dropped.

The singer was led away and showed no negative emotions when the verdict was read.  Bond was refused and now Buju awaits sentencing.  Buju’s lawyers have vowed to appeal, as they continue to try to prove their client was a victim of entrapment.
