(So. Florida --
6, January 2010)
Gargamel Music, Inc. is pleased to announce
that top federal criminal defense attorney,
David Oscar Markus, has officially been
retained to defend four-time Grammy-nominated
Reggae icon, Buju Banton, against the
trumped-up drug charges currently being levied
against him by the United States government.
"Buju is innocent - plain and simple," declares Markus.
"He was set up from the jump by some evil people trying
to take advantage of his trusting and honest character.
We are all looking forward to getting him out of prison so
that he can move forward with his stellar music career."
Mr. Markus is a Magna Cum Laude Harvard Law
graduate who kicked off his high profile legal career
as an Assistant Federal Public Defender in Miami. His
overwhelmingly successful private practice,
Markus Law (www.markuslaw.com), focuses
primarily on federal criminal cases at both the trial and
Prestigious attorney resource guide, Chambers
and Partners, says David Oscar Markus
"is a man who gets consistently great results...
When he walks into a room the US Attorney's office
winces as he puts them to the test every step of the
way." The National Law Review
says, "David is a reincarnation of the old time great
criminal defense attorneys."
The nationally recognized litigator has also
consistently been named one of the top lawyers in the
country by Florida Super Lawyers
(2006 - 2009); Florida Trend (2008 -
2009); Daily Business Review's 5th
Annual Most Effective Lawyers (2009); Top
Lawyers In South Florida (2002 - 2009);
South Florida Legal Guide (2002 -
2008); Best Lawyers In America (2007
Early Tuesday morning, US Marshalls transferred
Buju Banton to a jail facility in Tampa. He is
scheduled to appear in US District Court for the Middle
District Of Florida on Thursday. Meanwhile, sales of
Banton's Grammy-nominated album, Rasta Got
Soul, have continued to increase in the four
weeks since his incarceration. A documentary-style
music video for new single "Optimistic Soul"
will begin circulating in the coming weeks.
