Buju Banton’s trial adjourned for second time

By: Cherisse M. Sutton-Jeffers,

    MIAMI, Florida - REGGAE sensation Buju Banton will have to continue waiting the outcome of his trial behind bars as his case was once again adjourned.


    The Jamaican singer, who was arrested on drug charges in Florida six months ago, had his case adjourned from June 21 to September.


    Buju’s lawyer is arguing that the rescheduling for the second time violates the federal Speedy Trial Act, which generally requires trials to begin within 70 days after a defendant`s first court appearance.


    If convicted, the 36-year-old born Mark Anthony Myrie could face up to life in prison. On April 5, 2004, Buju was fined US$9,000 for drug possession and cultivation of cannabis after two mature marijuana plants were discovered growing at his studio in December 2003. He defended himself by stating that he just came from a long tour and found the plants there.


    Buju Banton has had nine albums throughout his musical career; the latest one being ‘Rasta got Soul’ which was released in 2009. He is known for past hits such as ‘Willy Don’t Be Silly’, ‘Mr. Nine’, ‘Paid Not Played’, ‘Murderer’, ‘Driver’ and ‘Magic City’
