While anticipating the results of an ongoing investigation regarding possible juror misconduct during his drug trial, embattled Reggae icon, Buju Banton will be made to wait in his pursuit of higher learning behind bars.
Buju, who was sentenced to a prison term of 10 years inside a Florida courtroom, indicated shortly thereafter that he would pursue a Masters Degree in political science and economics. However, Buju’s lawyer, Chokwe Lumumba revealed that the Grammy-winning singjay’s educational journey has been halted due to the investigation into a possible juror violation during his February 2011 trial.
Originally, Buju Banton served his prison term while at a low security federal prison in Groesbeck, Texas before being moved to a Miami-based facility due to safety concerns. After successfully delving into his studies for the last 18 months, Buju’s time in the classroom remains on hold now that he’s housed at the Pinellas County Jail in Tampa, FL until the current investigation is resolved.
