Buju Banton, Free (On Bail) At Last


While Buju Banton awaits a retrial in Miami after last month’s hung jury on drug charges, the singer will be able to go free on bail — to the tune of $250k. But he’ll also have to wear an ankle monitoring bracelet and pay for security officers that’ll keep him from fleeing the country. He’ll remain under house arrest, be subject to drug testing, and can only leave the house to meet with his attorney. So it sounds like his defense council is going to have a lot of strategy meetings at local crack houses.
