Two Months And Busy Is Back in Jamaica

United States-based attorney William Mauzy says Jamaican entertainer Busy Signal was "very happy" with the six-month jail sentence handed to him in the state of Minnesota yesterday. "Given all the circumstances, he is very excited that the exit from jail is in sight and that he will be returning to Jamaica," said Mauzy, who represented the entertainer, whose real name is Glendale Gordon. According to Mauzy, Busy Signal relayed his feelings during a brief conversation they had after the sentence was announced. Despite the six-month jail term for absconding bail on drug charges dating back to 2002, the entertainer could be freed in 60 days.

 

This after he was given credit for the four months he has been in custody after he was extradited from Jamaica.

Mauzy said he had no concern that prosecutors would seek to reinstate drug charges against the entertainer, pointing out that the Extradition Treaty between Jamaica and the United States prohibits them from doing so.

"They cannot prosecute him while he is in the United States for any other offence," Mauzy insisted.

Mauzy said prison confinement has been "particularly tough" on his client.

"He lost a substantial amount of weight and it's an ordeal he is looking forward to being over."
