It's not an easy road for embattled reggae entertainer Buju Banton who patiently awaits a decision for bail.


Last month Buju’s lawyer filed a motion for bond. However, after the bail hearing last week, the judge felt he needed time to access the arguments made by the prosecution and the defense before his final decision.


As previously reported, a mistrial was declared in Buju Banton’s ongoing drug battle against the United States government after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict.


The Gargamel, who has been in custody since December 10 of last year, had his entertainment visa revoked upon his arrest.


Buju Banton’s lawyer David Markus in his application for bail stated that the entertainer is not a flight risk or a threat to the community.


However, The Gargamel's court battle does not end there, as if Buju is granted bail he will then be turned over to immigration authorities where another bail hearing will take place, which means, long days still ahead.
