Bobby Shmurda Coerced Into Plea Deal?


Last month Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda took a plea deal on gun charges after getting picked up, along with 19 co-defendants, in a sweep by the NYPD gang task force [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Bobby claims he was forced to take the deal...

Bobby Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in prison in Manhattan Supreme Court today on 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession charges.

During sentencing the rapper, who has remained in jail without bond since his 2014 arrest [click here if you missed that], told the court,
"I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence. I was forced by my attorney to take this plea."
The plea deal also waived Bobby's right to appeal.

Last month Bobby told Complex Magazine he took the deal to help co-defendant Chad 'Rowdy Rebel' Marshall explaining,
"I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12. They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs."
With good behavior and time served he should be out by 2021.

Well, I guess Bobby will have plenty of time to purr-fect his shmoney dance cause he's a hot nig-ha. He's doing 7 cause he's a hot nig-ha. He'll be giving neck cause he's a hot nig-ha.

A perfect example of "When keeping it real goes wrong". The bright side is at least he will still be a young man when he gets out.
