Buju Banton Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison On Drug Charges

The reggae star shaves five years off his expected 15-year sentence after a gun charge was tossed from the case.

Buju Banton has been sentenced to 10 years in prison stemming from conspiracy charges to deal cocaine. He was found guilty on "conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense and using a telephone to facilitate a drug trafficking offense."

U.S. District Judge James S. Moody received dozens of notes pleading for leniency from his several children, an NBA player and actor Danny Glover, who branded Banton a "role model, philanthropist and spiritual leader in the community."

Moody threw out a gun charge, which would have tacked on an additional five years to his sentence. He will serve five years of probation following his release.
