Buju just can't catch a break huh??? After sitting in jail since December 2009 and expecting to go to court in March then having the date switched to April 12th, then to April 19th, he is now facing another delay. His court date has been pushed a further two months away, and his lawyers are understandably upset.

However in an order released yesterday, the US District Court in the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, announced a reschedule of his trial on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and possession of a firearm, will now start on Monday, June 21.

The court also announced that a status conference is to be held on Thursday, June 3, at the US Sam Gibbons Courthouse in Tampa, Florida. His lawyers filed a motion for a status conference to discuss the trial date.

Buju’s attorney, David Markus argued that the court rescheduled the trial at a disadvantage to Buju. Witnesses from outside the state of FL have bought plane tickets and booked hotels based on the April 19th date.

The defense team is willing to have the case transferred to a different judge if it means an earlier start of the trial.

You can keep up with updates from Camp Buju by visiting his official trial coverage site you can even read motions filed by his lawyer such as the one for Bond or for alternative relief. which was filed after he was put in max for sharing food with another inmate.
