Buju Banton’s trial has begun. Nine months ago in Tampa, Florida the Jamaican Dancehall superstar was arrested after a surveillance camera allegedly caught the singer and associates making a drug transaction with an informant to buy more than five kilos of cocaine. That’s when the informant reportedly told DEA agents that he saw Buju inspecting the cocaine.
If convicted, he faces a possible life sentence.
Buju’s 2 co-defendants have pleaded guilty and have now agreed to testify against him. Buju’s attorney is arguing that the government informant entrapped his client.
