Embattled Reggae/Dancehall legend, Buju Banton will be back in court on February 19 as his juror misconduct trial continues to take shape.


Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie will be present along with Terri Wright, a juror accused of researching facts of Buju's case during the singjay's trial nearly two years ago, which violates federal court guidelines. Wright, who admitted to a Florida newspaper last October that she looked up aspects of Buju's case, will be forced to bring her computer for a thorough examination of what information she accessed and when, as order by Judge James Moody.

Additionally, nine jurors have been subpoenaed to appear at the hearing, which was granted following an evidentiary hearing on December 20.

All this takes place just over four months after Buju was due to be re-sentenced on a gun charge stemming from the initial trial in a Florida courtroom on October 30. However, the 'Gargamel' was granted a reprieve after his lawyer, Chokwe Lumumba successfully filed a motion demanding that law enforcement officials investigate the alleged compromise Wright displayed while serving on the trial. Lumumba also claimed he has a tape proving the act occurred.

He is currently serving a 10-year sentence on drug charges and was facing an additional five years at the time of the re-sentencing. If it is determined that juror misconduct did occur, the case could be ruled a mistrial, leading to the Grammy-winning entertainer's freedom.
