Jury to begin deliberations in Buju Banton trial

A federal jury in Florida will begin deliberations in the drug trial of Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton.

The 37-year-old Banton, whose given name is Mark Myrie, is on trial for conspiring with two other men in setting up a drug deal in December of 2009. His album “Before the Dawn” won a Grammy on Sunday for best reggae album.

Federal Judge James Moody is scheduled to give the jury deliberation instructions Friday morning.

This is Banton’s second trial; a jury deadlocked in his first trial last year. If convicted of all the charges, he faces up to life in prison.
