Attorney Howard Greenberg thinks his client, rapper Bobby Shmurda, is being railroaded.
Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, was arrested along with members of his GS9 crew, on Dec.17, and charged with a number of crimes including conspiracy to commit second degree murder and conspiracy to commit second degree assault.
Reports shortly after the arrest said that Shmurda’s record company, Epic Records, would pay the “Hot Boy” rapper’s two million dollar bail but thus far that hasn’t happened and Shmurda spent Christmas on RIkers Island.
Greenberg tells the Fader that Shmurda’s charges fail to make sense and the government is hell bent on bringing him down:
According to the authorities, the GS9 crew was the subject of a two year investigation resulting in the arrest of Shmurda and 14 others.
If convicted Bobby Shmurda is facing 8 to 25 years.
