The Associated Press reports that despite pleas for leniency from family members, fans and supporters, a federal judge sentenced Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton to 10 years in prison for conspiring to set up a cocaine deal.
Banton was found guilty of 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. Sounds like a lot of offenses.
What do you think of the severity of the punishment and sentencing for Banton? Is it extreme?
