Bobby Shmurda Gets 7 Years After Last Attempt To Drop Plea Deal
I don’t which episode of “How To Get Away With Murder” Bobby Shmurda MISSED but you can’t mess around in the court with the judge. Shmurda took the rap Wednesday — after changing his mind too late.
The hip-hop hitmaker was sentenced to seven years in prison Wednesday under the terms of a plea deal worked out last month with Manhattan prosecutors. But a suddenly reluctant Shmurda told Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Abraham Clott that his lawyer forced him into accepting the deal against his will.
“I was forced to take this sentence. I don’t want to take this sentence,” Shmurda told the judge as flustered lawyer Alex Spiro stood alongside him in the courtroom. “I want to drop my plea.” The rapper then addressed his lawyer directly: “I want to drop my plea and fire you.”
His last-ditch pitch fell on deaf ears as Clott imposed the agreed-upon sentence on Shmurda. Shmurda, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy and one count of weapons possession just days before he was due to stand trial. The Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, claimed that the gun was carrying when busted on June 3, 2014, was a prop for a rap video.
Shumurda is best known for the hit song “Hot Boy” and his performance in the “Shmoney Dance” video with Rowdy Rebel video which rang up millions of YouTube views.
For some reason, the system is really interested in keeping him in jail. This is a clear example of the reasons why its important to surround yourself around good people or at least safe enough people that will keep you out of jail.
