Buju Banton could walk free some time this year as an appeal falls in place.
Banton’s legal team, Charles Ogletree, has already started a new case for a retrial in the U.S. court of appeal.
The judge should reverse Buju Banton conviction based on two main problems with the case, according to Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree.
“I will be arguing somewhere in the 11th circuit it can be in Miami or other parts of the country it depends on who is sitting that day and what time its going to be,” Ogletree said.
“The two major issue is the fact that an informant was the one who set him up, number one, and number two was a juror doing research during the trial which makes no sense at all, about Buju Banton and about other issues and we found that out after the trial,” the law professor added.
