Reggae singer Buju Banton will appear in court on Tuesday, October 30, for his sentencing hearing.
Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is serving a 10-year sentence in Florida for drug trafficking.
According to the Associated Press, The Grammy winning singer’s attorney filed a motion last week requesting that the judge reconsider his sentence.
The motion includes a letter from Banton’s previous attorney David Markus to Federal Judge James Moody.
Markus says Banton is a first time offender with a non violent past and a history of charitable work, which makes him eligible for a reduced sentence.
Buju Banton is facing an additional five years for a gun charge.
