BUJU BANTON OFFERED $250,000 BAIL
Incarcerated reggae star Buju Banton was offered $250,000 bail in the Sam M Gibbons Federal Court in the United States today October 14th, 2010..
However, even this positive development carries unpleasant conditions as Buju will have a new fashion accessory - an electronic monitoring device, and he will be subjected to random drug testing. He will only be able leave his house for meetings with his attorney and for doctors’ appointments and to purchase medication.
Banton's lawyer David Oscar Markus will now have to seek bond in the immigration court to prevent his deportation to Jamaica. Banton’s
entertainment visa was revoked when he was arrested last December.
