Buju Banton waits to see if he is worse off

Buju Banton outside a Florida courtroom- Daraine Luton/Photographer

The sentencing of Jamaican reggae superstar Buju Banton has been postponed.

Buju Banton was scheduled to appear in court in the United States today to hear if his 10-year jail term will be increased by five more years.

This follows last month's decision by the US Court of Appeal for the 11th Circuit to agree with prosecutors and reinstate Buju's firearm possession conviction.

The appeals court had also ordered that the case be sent back to the trial judge for him to decide whether Buju should be retried on the firearm charge or sentenced to the five years allowed under the sentencing guidelines.

Buju, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie, was convicted of the firearms charge at his trial in February, but it was later thrown out by the trial judge.

The Grammy-winning artiste was also found guilty of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine and using a telephone to facilitate a drug-trafficking offence.

He was given a 10-year prison term for those convictions and was appealing against them when the high court made the order regarding the firearm charge.

Even though the US Appeal Court has turned down his case, Buju has indicated that he is prepared to continue his legal fight to overturn the convictions.

Last month he parted ways with his long-time attorney David Oscar Markus and hired civil rights attorney Chokwe Lumumba to take over his appeal.

They not done buju banton yet

KINGSTON Observer: IMPRISONED Jamaican entertainer Buju Banton will know today if he will be slapped with an additional five years in prison when he appears in the US District Court in Tampa, Florida.
Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was ordered re-sentenced on a gun charge following his failed appeal on a 10-year, drugrelated sentence in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.
However, despite the threat of additional prison time, Banton's new attorney Chokwe Lumumba has asked Judge James Moody to reduce his sentence after it was revealed that a female juror had breached federal court regulations by studying the Pinkerton Law during the course of Banton's second trial.
The law was used by prosecutors to connect him to a firearm, although he was miles away at the time the gun was found in the possession of a co-conspirator who was purchasing cocaine in a government-controlled warehouse in Tampa.
The juror, Terri Wright, has reportedly admitted to a Florida-based media house that she violated federal regulations and researched certain aspects of the case online during the trial to have a better grasp of the issues when deliberation started.
Lumumba refused to speak to the media yesterday and said, via an assistant at his office, that he would be available for interviews after today's re-sentencing hearing.
Wright's admission has opened a lifeline for the artiste, and Lumumba has been adamant that his client could seek a retrial or even a dismissal of charges when he files a request for a hearing on the matter before the court.
He may face opposition from the prosecutors in the case who may seek to have the request thrown out and push for Banton to languish for another five years.
However, Banton's previous attorney David Oscar Markus said that, given the new revelation, his former client has a chance of serving a shorter sentence.
Markus had also written a letter informing Moody that Banton should be given a reduced sentence of five years and a day as he was a first offender, who had the backing of his entire country and has carried charitable works.
"I'm rooting for Buju. He doesn't deserve 10 years in prison, let alone 15. The jurors violated the judge's order and that's why it went from a first vote of 10 to two for not guilty to a conviction. I really hope Buju gets the relief he deserves," Markus told the Jamaica Observer via electronic mail yesterday.
Banton had requested that he be allowed to remain in prison during the sentencing hearing, but that request was thrown out by Judge Moody.
He is currently listed on the Federal Bureau of Prisons website as inmate number 86700-004 and is being housed at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Miami, Florida, a low-security facility which houses male inmates.
Yesterday, prison authorities removed him from that facility and took him to a holding cell in Tampa to await his fate.
If he manages to escape being slapped with additional time Banton is due to be released on March 1, 2019.
His two co-conspirators, Ian Thomas and James Mack, both had guilty pleas and were sentenced to 51 months each.

Kingston Gleaner: Embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel is to go on trial on December 3 for the murder of St. Catherine businessman Barrington 'Bossy' Burton.

The matter was called up in the Home Circuit Court this morning where both the defence and the prosecution agreed to the December date on the grounds that the court is now occupied and so the case cannot proceed just yet.

The entertainer has been in custody since September last year.

KINGSTON STAR: As things were with he and Vybz Kartel, dancehall artiste Tommy Lee now has a protégé following in his footsteps.

The fresh artiste being endorsed by the Uncle Demon deejay is called Keda, and she is already gaining attention for her remix to his recent dancehall single Body Mechanic.

Keda is based in Miami however, the sinjay is currently in Jamaica promoting the single Body Mechanic, which also happens to be one of Tommy Lee Sparta's most popular songs on local airwaves.

According to publicist Karl Durrant: "Things look great for Keda right now, as her first single is already buzzing on radio and in the streets, not to mention the fact she has one of the hottest artistes in dancehall in her corner, and she is stunning, so, overall, I see big things for her in the very near future".

Mr. Vegas sings about his recent Pum Pum ordeal

KINGSTON, STAR: After airing his personal life on social media, artiste Mr Vegas has decided to put his version of the experience on wax.

Mr Vegas publicly accused his ex-lover of cheating on him in his home and has decided to chronicle the incident in two new songs titled Bare Tingz and Rise Again.

In Bare Tingz he sings:

This yah gal a gwaan wid bare tingz/ Turn mi house inna Days Inn/ Gone wid mi life savings/ This yah gal a gwaan wid bare tings/ Mi say when you a fall in lovemake sure yuh nuh fall too deep/ The gal have man a bruk it dung inna mi bed, all now mi caan sleep.

With the release of the song, fans have rallied around the artiste and have offered him their support.

In an interview with THE STAR, Mr Vegas stated, "I always use music to express myself, I write about things that are happening around me. Based on a personal experience, I went into the studio and recorded Rise Again & Bare Tingz.

The song Rise Again alludes to the blistering heartbreak in which Mr Vegas tells his former lover that although he is hurt, he is better off without her and will rise again.

Both songs have been gaining momentum both locally and internationally and have already began creating a buzz on social media sites.

In September, Mr Vegas and the mother of his child had a public fall out when the artiste accused her of having sexual intercourse in front of their one year old child.

Pictures of her romp were also posted online with fans lashing her for the incident.

Lady Saw Dog makes her $1.5 million poorer

OBSERVER KINGSTON: DEEJAY Lady Saw will now have to fork out over $1.5 million in damages to a 62-year-old day's worker who had to be hospitalised for a month after being mauled by dogs at her upper St Andrew home three years ago.
Dorothy Wilson was awarded the sum with interests by Justice Leighton Pusey during an assessment of damages hearing last Wednesday in the Supreme Court.
According to Wilson's witness statement that was submitted to the court as part of her lawsuit, she was attacked on September 29, 2009 after completing a day's work at the Chancery Hall, St Andrew, residence of Lady Saw, whose real name is Marion Hall.
Wilson, who was represented in court by attorney Carla Brydson of the firm Archer, Cummings & Company, said in her witness statement that she was getting ready to leave the premises when the dogs pounced, ripping off a chunk of flesh from a leg and eating it.
According to Wilson's witness statement, she was left with over 20 bites when the approximately 10 dogs finally relented their savage attack.
The woman was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies where she spent five weeks.
Wilson said in the court documents that she had worked with Hall for about 15 years.
She also said that at least three of the dogs were of the pitbull breed.
As a result of the attack, Wilson said in court documents that she is unable to work as she used to.
"To date, I'm still unable to use my right hand efficiently," Wilson said in her witness statement.
Wilson subsequently filed suit, but the case was not contested by Hall.
Hall told the Jamaica Observer on Tuesday that she was not served any documents to show up for court and that she has contacted her lawyer about the matter.
She also disputed claims that she had ever employed Wilson.
Hall's sister, who resides at the Chancery Hall home, told the Observer that it was she who hired Wilson, whom she knew for four years, to do laundry work, and not Hall, who was abroad at the time.
"I feel so bad about it because it was me who hired her," Hall's sister said.
According to Hall's sister, the grille was closed and Wilson knew that she was not supposed to go around the back area where the dogs were.
At the assessment of damages hearing last week, Wilson was awarded general damages in the sum of $1 million, with three per cent interest from March 29, 2011 to October 10, 2012.
Special damages was assessed in the sum of $482,601 with three per cent interest from the date of the attack, September 29, 2009, to October 10, 2012.
Hall will also have to pay Wilson's legal fees.

Man who killed. Capt Barkey and Ms Bennett is dead

DaileyNews: He couldn't live with her or without her.
The cuckolded lover who brutally murdered his ex-girlfriend and her lover in the Bronx Saturday committed suicide after police trapped him inside a Miami apartment late Tuesday night, authorities said.

Fugitive Joseph Kernizan, 42, shot himself in the head as the law closed in on his refuge about 11:30 p.m., officials said.

The suicide came three days after the double murder of Tracy Bennett, 38, and reggae star Wayne Hamilton, 50, as the couple exited a hot-sheets motel in the Eastchester section.

Bennett screamed for mercy as Kernizan shot her and Hamilton dead, ending five years of love-triangle drama.

Kernizan and Bennett had two children together, but she had been dating Hamilton since 2007.

Friends in New York were stunned by the sudden and savage turn of events that orphaned the Kernizan kids.

"I didn't see it coming, not in a million years," said Duval Pinnock, 34, outside Kernizan's Brooklyn barber shop. "He was a quiet guy and a good business owner."

The Haitian-born Kernizan was tracked to a heavily Haitian section of Miami by NYPD detectives who trailed his friends and monitored his phone, sources told the Daily News.

He was staying with a pal inside the house when a dozen police vehicles arrived, said neighbor Nija Garnett.

"Get away from the house!" cops shouted.

Police used a bullhorn to order residents out of the building, and Kernizan tried to escape out the back door — only to find the waiting police, cops said.

The suspect bolted back inside, and three gunshots were heard moments later. A robot with a camera found the body.

A Bronx Felony Squad detective made a tentative ID of the suspect at the death scene. A .380-caliber handgun was found near the body, which had a gunshot wound to the head.

The weapon was not the same one used to kill Bennett and Hamilton.

Sean Paul album Tomahawk Technique flops.

KINGSTON, Observer - TWO weeks after its release in the United States, Sean Paul's fifth studio album Tomahawk Technique, has returned paltry numbers.
