Buju Banton's Retrial Delayed until February

Buju Banton Retrial Delayed - Reggae News

TAMPA - The retrial of Jamaican reggae singer Buju Banton is being delayed until February at the request of the defense.
Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is trying to secure his release from jail pending the federal trial, which follows a trial that ended in a hung jury in September. He is charged with trying to traffick in cocaine.
U.S. District Judge James Moody, who had said the new trial would be in December, granted a defense motion to postpone, and set the case for his February trial calendar. But the judge did not set a specific date.
