BUJU BANTON SET TO APPEAR AT BAIL HEARING IN MIAMI

Oh Buju……

Via AP

A bail hearing is scheduled Wednesday morning for the 36-year-old singer, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie.

Banton and two others allegedly attempted to buy a large amount of cocaine from an undercover law enforcement officer in Sarasota last week. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration was tipped off by a confidential informant.

Banton has been in federal custody since Thursday in Miami pending transfer to Tampa, where the case is being prosecuted.

He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted of a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.

Banton’s attorney says the singer “vigorously denies” the charges.

I am just hoping and praying he’s innocent of any wrong doing…. but it doesnt sound good.

  1. I hope he is innocent, but perhaps as TY said, the views we have of the man may not be correct, I would’ve thought that a man in his position would won’t to stay as far away from class A’s (the buying and selling (In Bulk) of such drugs) as possible, but perhaps I wrong, perhaps that theory is wrong, perhaps he doesn’t care about all that, and is focus’d on being top Shotta?…hummm, can already see how that route works out!

  2. i HOPE HE IS INNOCENT OF ANY WRONG DOING!!! i really do!!…
    and i hope if he is proven guilty we all acknowledge what a let down it is to see this happen instead of keeping mad quiet like the black community seem to be doing!!! AT THE MOMENT!!

  3. @ Ty, do you mind elaborating on your last post? What do you mean by the black community keeping mad quiet at the moment?

  4. does anyone know the address or at least the name of the prison where Buju is? I want to send him a letter…THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
