Another Juror Says Buju Banton Is Not Guilty of Gun Charge
Terri Wright has been called to serve jury duty seven times. But none of the cases compares to the federal drug and gun trial of reggae singer Buju Banton. That one "took the cake," as she puts it. She still talks to coworkers about the murky back story of the federal snitch, Alex Johnson, and says she couldn't sleep at night when deliberating.
Because later this month, on October 30, Buju is slated to be resentenced on the gun charge. It seems that Judge James Moody, who originally dismissed the gun count, has few options but to toss on another five years to the Buju's decadelong sentence.
