Judge James Moody Jnr. today threw out a gun charge against International Reggae Artiste Buju Banton today.
Justice Moody has also ordered the juror Teri Wright, to show why she should not be held in contempt of court after she told a journalist based in South Florida that she did research on the case during the trial. Buju whose real name is Mark Myrie, and his lawyer Chokwe Lumumba have requested that the presiding Judge James Moody Jnr., set a new trial on the grounds of juror misconduct. The Reggae artiste who is behind bars on a 10-year jail sentence for drug charges, was facing an additional five-year sentence, if he had failed in his appeal.
