Juror from Buju Banton trial found guilty of contempt
The former juror in the trial of Buju Banton has been found guilty of contempt for researching the case outside of court.
Federal Judge, James S. Moody on Thursday ordered Terri Wright to serve five months probation, perform 40 hours of community service, and to research and write a paper on the cost to taxpayers of a six-day trial.
But what does this new development mean for Buju Banton who is currently serving a 10 year prison sentence following his conviction in 2011 on gun and drug charges.
According to prominent attorney at law Professor David Rowe, Terri Wright’s conviction will have no legal effect, and as such will not have any impact on Buju Banton’s case.
Federal Judge James S. Moody granted a defense attorney’s request that Terri Wright’s sentencing be set aside pending the completion of an appeal.
