BBC RADIO ONE drum-and-bass show DJ RAYMOND "GROOVERIDER" BINGHAM was sentenced to four years in prison in DUBAI for possession of cannabis.
BINGHAM was arrested on NOVEMBER 23rd on drug and pornography charges hours before he was to play a sold-out show at a club in the UNITED ARAB EMIRATES city. He was convicted despite his denial that he deliberately brought drugs into the country, saying that he accidentally left the cannabis in his pocket.
