Incarcerated reggae superstar Buju Banton got a glimmer of hope when it emerged that embattled juror Teri Wright had submitted the wrong computer hard drive for examination by a computer forensic expert. The expert, hired specifically by Banton to examine if Wright had studied aspects of the law involving his drug trafficking case during his second trial in February 2011, examined a hard drive from a desk top instead of Wright's laptop.
Wright had reportedly told a reporter that she studied aspects of the Pinkerton Law which was used to convict Banton on a firearm charge.He faces an additional five years after an Appeals Court threw out a motion to have his sentence overturned. If the court rules in favour of Banton, it would open the way for a new trial for the entertainer who is serving a 10-year sentence after being found guilty of drug-related charges. He is currently languishing in the Pinellas County Jail in Tampa, Florida until the matter is sorted out by the US Sam Gibbons Court in the same city.
