Judge could rule whether to drop two charges against Buju Banton {HeadLines}

US judge James Moody could rule today whether the two new charges against Jamaican Reggae artiste Buju Banton will be dropped.

Banton also known as Mark Myrie, is facing four drug and cocaine charges in the United States.

The original charges were, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and, possession of a firearm during the course of a drug trafficking crime.

However, after a hung jury in the trial late last year, two new charges were added.

They are attempting to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and using a communication facility in the commission of a felony.

Yesterday, Buju’s lawyer David Oskar Marcus submitted that the two new charges be thrown out because the prosecution has not advanced any evidence to support them.

Judge Moody could rule on that submission when the Buju Banton case resumes in Tampa Florida this morning.
