Last week, Bobby Shmurda accepted a plea deal in his murder conspiracy case and will do seven years (with two years served) on conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon.
Rowdy Rebel got the same deal, and in a interview with Complex Shmurda explained that a big part of why he plead out was to help his boy Rowdy out.
Why did you take the plea deal? BS: 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. RR: My boy copped out for me, you heard?Shmurda also said he believes he would have been able to beat the case if he could have made bail.
If we made bail I would’ve beat the case. We look guilty in these orange jumpsuits. If you put Al Sharpton in a orange jumpsuit and accuse him of having a gun, he’s going to be found guilty. They just look at our skin color, and look at where we’re from. I didn’t get caught with anything on me and the cops lied, saying they seen me with a gun in my hand. I explained the whole situation to Epic and they were behind me all the way. We had big-money lawyers and they still couldn’t do nothing because of the judge, who looked at us like black thugs.Check out the full interview here. In it, Shmurda says he thinks he'll be out in three years.
