Buju Banton facing 15 years

We reported a couple of months ago that reggae star - Buju Banton had gotten himself in a spot of bother regarding a set up drug deal.

The subject of the deal was said to be 5 kilos of cocaine which was offered to the reggae star by an informant. The informant was paid a generous amount by the DEA to get Banton to agree to the deal before he was arrested. Banton has been found guilty of the charges against him and now faces 15 years in prison.

Banton's - "Before The Dawn" won Best Reggae Album at the 2011 Grammys but it would be fair to say that any new album could be a substantial way off.
