International reggae artiste Buju Banton will know his fate in 12 days.

The incarcerated Grammy Award winner artiste is expected to be sentenced in a Florida court on June 23, putting an end to his lengthy high profile drug battle against the United States government.

Professor David Rowe, prominent Florida based attorney is predicting a long sentence for Buju based on the pre sentencing guideline and the charges filed against him.

Buju, whose given name is Mark Myrie, has been locked up since December 10, 2009 and was found guilty of three cocaine related charges on February 22, 2011.

He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years.

However, his lawyers have already filed an appeal stating that 15 years is more than necessary for the crimes committed.
