The hearing on the Motion for Bond for Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton has been scheduled for October 6, 2010 at 1:30p.m before Florida Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli. The prosecution in the case against the Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton has also been granted until September 30, 2010 to file a response to the motion for bail.
Buju’s lawyer filed the application
Yesterday, after the judge, James Moody, declared a mistrial when the 12-member jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision in the drug case.
The judge said a new trial is to be held in December on a date to be announced.
Buju’s attorney, David Markus, has asked the court to release his client on bail, pending the next trial. He maintains that his client will be found innocent.
