Artiste Busy Signal, who was extradited a few months ago to face a charge of absconding bail, pleaded guilty in court on Thursday.
Busy Signal admitted that he left the United States 10 years ago before his scheduled trial on drug charges. In court., the deejay pleaded guilty to one count of failure to appear in court.
Reports are that Busy Signal could face between 12 to 18 months in prison and a fine of US$3,000 to US$30,000, under sentencing guideline recommendations.
A sentencing date has not been set.
While the cocaine charge still exists, the United States doesn't have jurisdiction to prosecute Gordon on those counts at this time.
Officials report that once Busy Signal serves his sentence, he will be given 45 days to return to Jamaica. If he remains in the US after that, he could be arrested on the drug charges.
