The 37-year-old Banton, whose given name is Mark Myrie, was on trial on accusations that he conspired with two other men in setting up a drug deal in December of 2009.
His album "Before the Dawn" won a Grammy last week for best reggae album.
This is Banton's second trial. A jury deadlocked in his first trial last year.
