HT coram nobis.  From Miami Herald:

Buju Banton, the Jamaican reggae star whose anti-gay lyrics have drawn international criticism, is in a federal lockup in Miami, facing drug conspiracy charges.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents say Banton, real name Mark Anthony Myrie, has been in custody since Thursday and will soon be transferred to Tampa, where the U.S. Attorney is charging him with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than five kilos of cocaine.

Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but the real question is will the prison warden allow him to keep his Grammy in his cell?

Warning (and I mean it): I do not want to see any “jokes” about rape being some form of acceptable prison justice.  You have been warned!
