#21. Buju Banton Gets Sentenced To 10 Years On Drug Charges
Date: June 21
In June, reggae star Buju Banton was sentenced to ten years in prison on charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine. The sentencing stemmed from a 2009 arrest when Banton was caught trying to organize a drug deal with an undercover DEA agent. Sure, it's a terrible thing, but at least Buju went out like a true G. Supposedly he smiled when the judge handed down his sentence.
