Buju Banton lost 40 pounds - - Attorney: client moved from jail for diet concerns

The Associated Press

buju_banton_pounds_40.jpgTAMPA, Fla. -- The attorney for Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton wants his client moved from the Pinellas County jail - for diet concerns.

Attorney David Markus filed the motion Monday. A hearing is set for Friday morning.

Banton has been in jail on a drug charge since December. The motion says he's lost 40 pounds and was not given a diet in accordance with his religious views. He's a Rastafarian, a religion that places importance on a vegetable- and fruit-based diet.

The attorney also claimed that the government used a paid informant to convince his client to buy cocaine.

The 36-year-old singer, born Mark Myrie, pleaded not guilty to a drug charge in Tampa federal court.

Banton's trial is expected to begin in April.
