JUDGE REJECTS BUJU BANTON'S REQUESTPosted: May 11, 2010
Buju Banton has been denied access to files requested from the state of Florida for his drug possession trial.
In documents obtained by Music News, the Gargamel and his lawyers were refused access to the civil tax liability documents of the confidential source or the informant.
Prominent attorney at law David Rowe says the judge sided with the prosecution sighting that the trial is not about whether the informant has paid his taxes but whether or not Buju Banton was selling cocaine. (CLIP)
