Grammy award-winning Jamaican reggae artiste Buju Banton has lost his appeal to have his conviction overturned to secure a new trial.
With this ruling, that was handed down in a Florida court Mr. Mark Myrie, will continue to serve his 10-year prison sentence.
He is currently serving a mandatory sentence for his conviction on a charge of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Buju is scheduled to be released in 2019, however he filed his own motion from prison asking to be released early under a recent change in federal drug sentencing guidelines.
