Ashanti’s convicted stalker is in custody but isn’t going down without a fight.
The New York Daily News reports that 35-year-old Devar Hurd made a scene in a Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (Mar. 11), demanding that his case be assigned to a new judge. It seems as though Hurd believes that there is a conflict of interest.
After Judge Charles Solomon asked Hurd’s Defense Attorney Glenn Hardy if the prosecutors had turned over the incriminating text messages and tweets, Hurd snapped and demanded that the lawyers be switched.
“You know I didn’t do nothin’,” Hurd yelled at Justice Solomon. “Why are you not honoring the simple fact of what’s going on? Isn’t that part of your job?”
After Hurd ignored the judge’s warnings to pipe down, he was escorted out of the courtroom.
Hurd was convicted of stalking the “Foolish” singer in 2009 and was hauled off to jail for three years. Shortly after his 2012 release, he resumed stalking the singer and her family, sending over 100 lewd pictures and text messages to them.
His next court date is April 15.
