Buju Banton may get an early release
The United States Government may have made a slip-up in the Mark 'Buju Banton' Myrie's drug trial.
It was said that the US government failed to bring the artiste to trial before 70 days, a right guaranteed under the Sixth Amendment.
Buju's lawyers last week filed an appeal in a Georgia Court of Appeal citing the violation of the act and that the Grammy winning entertainer was deceived. Violations of the act may result in dismissal of a criminal case.
Buju Banton is currently serving a 10-year sentence in a Federal Correctional Institution in Miami, Florida.
