REGGAE star Buju Banton was found guilty on three charges by a 12-member panel of jurors a short while ago.
The artiste was found guilty of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five or more kilogrammes of cocaine, attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, and using the wires to facilitate a drug-trafficking offence.
However he was found not guilty of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking offence.
The artiste hugged his lawyer David Markus when the verdict was read.
Many of the artiste's supporters left the courtroom crying. He has been detained and has had his bail revoked..
