The attorney for international reggae star Mark Myrie more popularly known as Buju Banton has asked a federal judge in Tampa, Florida, to reconsider the 10-year prison sentence the Jamaican reggae singer is serving on two drug charges.
Buju is set to appear in Tampa federal court tomorrow for a re-sentencing on a gun possession charge.
That charge carries an additional five-year prison sentence.
The motion filed last week includes a letter to U.S. District Judge James Moody from Banton's former attorney, David Markus.
Buju's lawyer has asked for a reconsideration because he's a first-time, non-violent offender with the support of his entire country and a history of charitable work.
