TAMPA, Florida — A jury foreman minutes ago told United States judge Jim Moody that they have not been able to reach a verdict in the drug case involving Jamaican Reggae star Buju Banton.

The foreman said the 12-member jury was split evenly.

“I don’t know if we will get to a final decision. We don’t feel that we will progress, so could you provide further instructions? Since Thursday we have been reviewing evidence, nobody has changed their minds from their original positions,” the jury foreman told the court.

Moody then instructed the jurors to take their time in coming to a final decision.

“Be as leisurely as the occasion may require,” Moody said.

The judge gave further instructions that none of the jurors should surrender their conscience decision.

Banton’s attorney David Markus then filed a motion for a mistrial but Moody rejected the motion.

Banton appeared in court in a white shirt and a cream coloured pants today. His feet were shackled.

The long wait for a verdict has not been going down well with the artiste’s supporters who all appeared nervous.

TAMPA – Jurors in the Buju Banton federal drug trial are having trouble reaching a verdict.

After about an hour of discussion on what has been their third day of deliberation, jurors sent a note to U.S. District Judge James Moody telling him about their difficulties.

“Just for informational purposes,” the note said, “we are still split on a decision and after reviewing evidence, nobody has changed their minds from our original vote on Thursday.”

The case went to the jury Thursday after closing arguments in a four-day trial. Jurors were allowed to go home for the weekend.

Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, has been held without bail since his arrest in December on federal drug and weapons charges. The defense maintains Banton, 37, was entrapped. The government is using evidence of conversations Banton had with an informant

PRAYERS FOR BUJU BANTON

Psalm 70
1 Hasten, O God, to save me;
O LORD, come quickly to help me.
2 May those who seek my life
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
be turned back in disgrace.

3 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
turn back because of their shame.

4 But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation always say,
“Let God be exalted!”

5 Yet I am poor and needy;
come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
O LORD, do not delay.
