After debating heavily about in court about the stance of Bobby Shmurda‘s murder conspiracy case, it has come to our knowledge that the Brooklyn rapper and his team of lawyers accepted the plea deal where Shmurda will spend seven years in prison and five years probation.
According to TMZ:
Bobby Shmurda just pled guilty in his murder conspiracy case.
Shmurda, has been jailed since December 2014 in a case where more than 15 defendants were charged with various crimes, including murder, attempted murder and drug dealing.
The rapper was originally charged with conspiracy to commit murder and several weapons and drug charges associated with gangs.
According to the deal, Shmurda pled to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon. The other charges were dismissed, and he’ll get 7 years in prison and 5 years probation.
A TMZ producer was in court, and heard Shmurda’s lawyer speak with his client and other defendants, imploring them to take the deal because they’d never get a sympathetic jury and they were facing life in prison.
Shmurda’s case became a cause celebre, where other rappers were calling for his release.
Hopefully, Bobby will be on his best behavior during his time in prison with the hopes of being released before his seven year time is up. Much luck to him. We’re praying for him, his close family and friends. This should be a lesson well-learned for the what was a rising rap star.
