Feburary of lasy year, famed raggae artist, Buju Banton was convicted of cocaine trafficking and conspiracy conviction that landed him a 10-year . Since then he has attempted to appeal the desicion.
A judge has denied Buju’s request for a new trial, stating there is no need because of a previous appeals court ruling. In June, Atlanta’s appeals court upheld Banton’s conviction, ruling that there was sufficient evidence to prosecute him.
Banton’s attorney filed a motion in July seeking a new trial, a request that Judge James Moody denied yesterday.
