Buju Banton Out of Jail
For the first time in almost twelve months exactly, Buju Banton is out of jail.
His retrial is not scheduled until Feb. 2011 so he will spend the next few months at home with his family…
His September trial resulted in a hung jury because jurors clearly couldn’t make a decision regarding his fate.
Buju was put in jail on charges of possessing and trafficking cocaine.
Last month, the judge presented him with the opportunity to post $250,000 bail under strict terms and 24-hour security. The prosecution appealed the judge’s ruling, but that appeal was denied.
Stephen Marley, Bob Marley’s son, put his $300,000 Florida home up for the bail bond to help his friend Buju, and yesterday, his bail was granted.
According to the Jamaica Observer, his team said “Buju can’t wait to have a nice meal and sleep in his own bed.”
