Buju Banton Contemplates Next Move, May Change Lawyer

 
 
 

Buju Banton 12013

Buju Banton is breathing a sigh of relief after a Federal Judge dismissed his gun charge last week.

However, Judge James Moody also dismissed the reggae singer’s application for a new trial on the grounds of a juror misconduct.

NEWS: Buju Banton Freed Of Gun Charge, Juror Held In Contempt

Buju Banton is now discussing with his lawyers whether or not he should appeal the judge’s decision not to grant him a new trial.

While he contemplates his next move, Buju Banton may also have to seek new legal representation since his current lawyer Chokwe Lumumba was elected mayor of Jackson, Mississippi last month.

Last week Moody handed down a ruling holding juror Teri Wright in contempt after she admitted to a Florida journalist that she researched aspects of the case during the high profile trial.

However, that was not enough for Moody to grant Buju Banton a new trial. He will continue to serve out his 10-year sentence in a Florida prison.

Buju Banton has 14 days to appeal the judge’s decision.

Banton, born Mark Myrie, would be released from prison in February 2019 if he continues to serve his sentence.
