Pooh Shiesty Is Trying His Best To Reduce Prison Sentence

Pooh Shiesty could have gotten life in prison for his involvement in a drug and sneaker deal gone bad.

However, he cut a deal with the Feds and when he's sentenced on April 20 he is expected to get eight years.

Shiesty's lawyer Bradford Cohen, who's worked wonders for the poorly behaved Kodak Black, is trying his best to whittle that down.

Among the most damning charges against Shiesty is he shot someone in the buttocks during the incident.

In new filings, Cohen claims “ballistics and forensic evidence" prove Shiesty didn't pull the trigger.

He also questions whether Shiesty, who only pled guilty to a firearm charge, should be punished for his involvement in the robbery.

“The government wants this court to believe Mr. Williams, with a net worth of $3,449,446, planned a robbery, then committed a robbery, and then shot a known drug dealer who knew him well and could easily identify him. All over a few hundred-dollar drug deal for personal use, while he was driving a lime green McLaren that he rented from the alleged victim," reads the filing.  "Mr. Williams possessed over $40,000 in cash and was driving a vehicle valued at over $200,000. It would be illogical for Mr. Williams to stage a robbery by two other individuals over something so minuscule as a bottle of liquid codeine with a retail value of a few hundred dollars, at most, when any damage done to the McLaren in the process would have cost thousands of dollars to repair."

Does that sound like a sentence-reducing argument?
