Busy Signal Sentenced To 6 Months, Gets Out November
Busy Signal is winning. The Reggae star was sentenced to six months imprisonment when he appeared in a Minnesota court on Thursday (September 22).
Busy Signal will only serve two months since he was locked up for four months in a Minnesota jail while awaiting his faith. Those four months was added to his sentenced as time served.
Busy Signal, born Glendale Goshia Gordon, plead guilty in July on a charge of absconding bail. The deejay was arrested in May in Kingston after stepping off a plane from London. He was then transferred to the United States after deciding not to contest his extradition.
The absconding bail charge stems from an incident in 2002 involving Busy Signal and another man. According to United States official, an informant helped them traced a cocaine package to the deejay who was arrested and charge with trafficking narcotics. However, Busy Signal fled to Jamaica in that year while he was on bail awaiting trial. He was on the run ever since until his luck ran out earlier this year.
Busy Signal will be deported back to Jamaica after his release in November.
