“Not guilty” was the plea made in a Florida federal court this past Thursday, January 7 2009 by Buju Banton.  From the onset, the four-time Grammy nominee, in custody since 12/09, did not seek bail.

Buju’s attorney, the highly acclaimed, Mr. DAVID OSCAR MARKUS, claims his client’s innocence.  MARKUS, a nationally recognized Magna Cum Laude Harvard Law graduate,  has consistently been named one of the top lawyers in the United States between the years 2002 to 2009.

“When he walks into a room

the US Attorney’s office winces as he puts them to the test every step of the way.” according to the prestigious attorney resource guide, Chambers and Partners.

Buju’s attorney, who is a veteran of many high-profile drug cases
including that of former Panama Military dictator Manuel Noriega, says his client is innocent and does not plan to seek a deal. Banton was arrested at his Tamarac home on Dec. 10, two days after federal authorities say he met with a confidential informant to discuss the drug buy.

Buju, nominated for his latest album, Rasta Got Soul, will most likely miss the Jan. 31st Grammy Awards. lol…..duuuhh

    Well if he is innocent all the power to him and we hope that he will be home soon if he is innocent. The DEA claimed that they have the artist on video tape this tape should be made public after court proceedings so we can then judge for ourselves. If not then this will only fuel the speculations that this was a set up.
