In 5 days international reggae entertainer Buju Banton will be sentenced by the United States government closing his lengthy high profile drug battle.
To be precise, Buju will know his fate on June 23 in a Florida court.
Just a quick look back on the events surrounding Buju’s trial: On December 10 of 2009, Buju Banton was arrested at his Florida home. According to a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration affidavit the week before his arrest, Buju and two others tried to buy a large amount of cocaine from an undercover officer in Sarasota.
Buju has since been tried twice. In the first trial, after three days of deliberating, the court ruled a mistrial following a split between the 12 jurors.
On October 14, 2010 Family, fans and reggae music lovers across the world celebrated when Buju Banton received bail despite the stringent conditions under which it was granted. The entertainer later performed in Miami to a sold-out audience before returning to confinement and ultimately the beginning of his retrial.
After being plagued with many setbacks and delays, the retrial began and ended quickly. The Grammy winning entertainer is currently awaiting the outcome after his lawyer David Oskar Marcus got a second shot at pleading his case of entrapment.
The two men charged along with Buju took plea deals. One of the men was sentenced to 51 months’ imprisonment.
While Buju Banton faces a maximum sentence of life in imprisonment.
Buju Banton was convicted in February on charges of conspiracy to distribute five or more kilos of cocaine, possession of a firearm in the furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and using the wires to facilitate a drug-trafficking offence.
The Grammy award-winning entertainer was acquitted of a fourth charge of attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.
