Buju Banton gets 10 years in maximum security prison

Artist Buju Banton, who was convicted of 3 charges related to drugs (cocaine), has been sentenced to ten (10) years in a maximum security prison by the United States federal court in Tampa, Florida.  After that, he’s supposed to be on 5 years probation.

You may recall that Buju was convicted right after winning and accepting his first Grammy award.  Buju, now 37, would get out when he’s 47 years old.  David Markus, Buju’s attorney begged for leniency but it seems there was none offered.
