Ja: Buju awaiting sentence on ganja charge

ENTERTAINER Buju Banton will have to wait until next Monday before he knows his fate on ganja possession and cultivating charges.

The entertainer, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was found guilty in the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate's Court last Friday and returned yesterday where sentencing was expected to be handed down.

However, when the entertainer returned to court yesterday, his attorney Christopher Dunkley applied to Resident Magistrate Kissock Laing for a postponement of sentencing, telling the magistrate that he would be asking the court to exercise its discretion in not recording the ganja conviction against his client.
