The Hearing on the Motion for Bond for Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton is set for October 6, 2010 at 1:30p.m in Florida before Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli.

The prosecution in the case involving Jamaican reggae superstar Buju Banton has also been granted until September 30, 2010 to file a response to Myrie's Motion for bail.

Buju’s lawyer filed the application yesterday after the judge, James Moody, declared a mistrial, when the 12-member jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision in the drug case.

The judge said a new trial is to be held in December on a date to be announced.

Buju’s attorney, David Markus, has asked the court to release his client on bail, pending the next trial.

Markus is maintaining that his client will be found innocent.
