For a little while it was looking good for Bobby Shmurda on the bail front.
Last week, celebrity bail bondsman Ira Judelson said he was on the case, and was going to post the $2 million required to bring the 20-year old home.
But that plan has hit a snag. According to the New York Times, the bail package application was pulled earlier today (Wednesday.) "It’s our understanding that the suretor has withdrawn and that no hearing is currently scheduled," said Kati Cornell, a spokeswoman for the office of the special narcotics prosecutor.
"We’re trying to do a new bond application and are in the process in the figuring that out," Shmurda's lawyer Kenneth Montgomery confirmed to the Times. “We’re hoping to get it done within the next week." According to Montgomery, Shmurda's pulled bail package had been backed by the rapper's "management associates."
That could mean Shmurda's uncles. They have claimed that they have been trying to post bail for Bobby for a while now, but he refuses to let them.
Shmurda was due in court tomorrow, per the NYC Department Of Corrections' web site. However, that may have been contingent on the bail package going through.
