Boom Bye Bye: BuJu Banton Denied Appeal, Possibly Facing More Jail Time

Aug

Jamaican dancehall icon Buju Banton has been denied an appeal request for a new trial by a Florida judge yesterday, and according to reports he may now be facing even more jail time…

Banton, who who was convicted on conspiracy to traffic drugs and gun charges in Florida last February filed to appeal his case on the grounds that he had not been given a speedy trial.

Unfortunately, Federal appeals court shot down his request and reinstated a previous gun charge, which could possibly adding five more years to BuJu’s ten year prison sentence.

A sentencing date for the gun charge has not been set.

Stay Tuned.
