Buju Banton awaits ruling in mistrial request

The Associated Press, Saturday, December 22, 2012, 11:30am (PST)
  • TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida juror who voted to convict Jamaican reggae singer Buju Banton on drug charges has denied improperly researching the case during trial, in spite of a weekly newspaper's report that quoted her as saying that she did.

    Banton is serving a 10-year prison sentence on two drug charges. The Grammy winner faces an additional five years on a related gun possession charge, but his resentencing hearing was postponed to investigate the report of juror misconduct.
