BBC RADIO ONE drum-and-bass show DJ RAYMOND "GROOVERIDER" BINGHAM has been released from a DUBAI prison after serving ten months of a four year sentence for possession of cannabis.
BINGHAM was arrested last 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 and was convicted over his assertions that the drugs were in his pocket by accident and he had no intent to bring them into the country. BINGHAM was pardoned by the DUBAI Royal Family and has returned to the U.K.
