TAMPA — Lawyers for imprisoned reggae star Buju Banton had an expert search juror Terri Wright’s computer this month to see if she read up on him while hearing his 2011 drug case.

While the expert found a trail of 1.6 million Internet history records, none pertained to the time frame under scrutiny: Feb. 14, 2011, to March 8, 2011, dates that include the trial and the two weeks that followed.

On Monday, the Banton side renewed its attack, claiming she surrendered the wrong device. Not so, said her attorney, Lori Palmieri, on Tuesday.

“She only had one computer; it was a laptop, and she brought it. In my opinion, end of story, but not in their story.”

Banton, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie, was convicted of trying to set up a deal to buy 11 pounds of cocaine and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

His lawyers want a new trial.

    Met, do you think he has any money left over? The bottom line, Buju was himself was his worst enemy, along with the guy who was very close to him. he talk too much and I think one key statement he made on tape was that he was a “investor” in the drug trade (put up the money so others can directly trade the stuff) for some time. I remember reading about a Judge related to the case (Appeals Judge?) making the statement that Buju seemed to have been very knowledgeable about the drug trade, implying that he have to be in it to know such intimate details. Did anyone see how quick the others took plead deals and was ready to testify against him?

    If he had accepted a plead deal, he would be home a long time ago, still have some money and would be able to continue in the music business in Jamaica. He took a death gamable in going to trial and he lost big time.

    Dem need fi leave it alone because everytime dem come up wid summen him fling back dung in di grung. Prison a nuh nice place, but him juss haffi adjust. Mi hear seh Wesley Snipes a teach yoga a prison, maybe Buju can find something of value to do in deh and bide him time. Ongle di higher power know why him ketch deh and nuh care wah dem try him caan come out..maybe dere is a bigger reason fi him deh deh.

  • Bebe says:

    From day one Buju shoulda enter a guilty by association plea and tell the court him a addict that’s why him taste di white stuff an sekkle fi a drug rehab programme and less time. All di lawyer dem a do a bruck him decently. Him might be woulda a look fi come home now or him woulda come aready. Mi still hope sinting good work out fi him cause him a good artiste.

  • Foxy Lady says:

    Buju is a damn idiot. The prosecutor offered him 2 years and because he didn’t want to give up his green card he took it to trial knowing all the evidence they had against him. From the time of the offer and his time already served he would have had only 6 months to complete but because he feels he’s Buju and invincible, he went to trial now your ass got all that time. Outside of that, hope he knows this is his punishment. No dirty deeds go unpunished. One word, one person SEBASTIAN!
