Reggae Star Buju Banton Sentenced to Ten Years

Today Reggae star Buju Banton was sentenced to 10 years in U.S. Federal Prison for his role in allegedly setting up a cocaine deal in Miami in December 2009. The 38-year-old Reggae star, born Mark Myrie was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was found guilty of conspiracy to posses, with the intent to distribute cocaine. Although the details of this case were very fishy early on as an informant was paid a commission ($50K), video of Buju tasting the coke is what ended it for Buju. Our prayers here at ST are with Buju and his family. With good behavior, he could be out in 6. Read more (here).
