A federal judge has thrown out part of reggae star Buju Banton's conviction due a criminal charge against one of the jurors who served during his trial.

A criminal contempt charge against jury foreman Terri Wright led to U.S. District Judge James S. Moody Jr. dismissing the gun conviction charge against the Grammy-award winning musician and the additional five years in prison that go with it.

However, Banton will still have to continue serving his 10-year sentence for the related drug case.

Banton was convicted in 2011.

Wright is accused of doing research on the case during the trial and sharing it with other jurors. Officials said Wright also lied to authorities about what she did.

Wright faces a fine and and up to six years in prison if she is found guilty of contempt.
