As a condition of his release, Banton must be have 24-hour security, that he will pay for, to ensure that he doesn’t leave his home except for emergency medical visits or meetings with his lawyer.
Banton was arrested earlier this year after attempting to buy cocaine off of an undercover Federal agent. His initial trial on charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute coke and a firearm charge ended in a mistrial early this month. Banton faced up to life in prison.
He is due back in court in December.
