Embattled Reggae singer, Mark Myrie aka Buju Banton may be gaining some traction in his juror misconduct case as one of the jurors in his February 2011 drug trial said the alleged violation involving foreman, Terri Wright was discussed in the jury room.


However, there remain more questions than answers after the juror misconduct trial resumed on Monday as some of the eight jurors subpoenaed to the US Sam Gibbons Court in Tampa, FL gave contrasting evidence as to whether or not Wright committed the alleged act. One of the jurors reportedly claimed he knew nothing about the supposed misconduct.

Wright appeared at Monday's hearing with her computer hard drive, as ordered by presiding judge, James Moody, where a computer specialist would examine it to determine if any evidence of this misconduct existed. She allegedly breached federal court orders by researching aspects of Banton's drug case after each day of the trial; admitting she did so to a Florida-based journalist last October, only to claim later on that she misunderstood what the writer had asked her.

Should Wright be deemed guilty of misconduct, this could result in a mistrial and possible freedom for the Grammy-winning musician.

No new date has been set in the juror misconduct trial.

Buju Banton is serving a 10-year sentence on drug charges stemming from a December 2009 incident at a government-controlled warehouse in Sarasota, FL. Banton was convicted on three cocaine-related charges and still faces an additional five years on a gun charge that was originally thrown out during the February 2011 ruling.

However, re-sentencing on the gun charge remains on hold as a result of the juror misconduct matter.
