Rapper Bobby Shmurda will be spending more time in prison. The rapper was supposed to be headed to trial this week but the case has been postponed until September.
Kati Cornell, the Director of Public Information at the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor in New York, confirmed the date change of the trial with XXL today (May 9). The “Hot N*gga” rhymer’s trial was initially scheduled for Feb. 22, then delayed until May 11. While the date was moved once more to May 12, now Bobby won’t appear in court for his trial until Sept. 12, exactly four months from the previously scheduled date.
The postponement comes at the request of the attorneys for the four defendants: Alex Spiro, who represents Bobby Shmurda (born Ackquille Pollard); Javier Solano, who represents Rowdy Rebel (born Chad Marshall); Kevin Canefield, who represents Cueno (born Santino Boderick); and Leslie Jones-Thomas, who represents Montana Flea (born Nicolas McCoy).
Bobby’s mother said that the rapper is keeping busy while in jail by writing movie scripts.Also On K97.5:
