Following news of GS9 member Rashid Derissant, 24, who was sentenced to 98 years in prison for murder, another affiliate received 53 1/3 years, the New York Daily News reports.
Alex “A-Rod” Crandon, 22, was charged with murder, conspiracy, and attempted murder, the site states. Crandon reportedly asked the judge, Abraham Clott, for compassion, stating, “Please allow me the opportunity to become a productive citizen and raise my daughter to become one also.”
However, the judge said, “The community must be protected given the enormity of the crimes here.” This news precedes Bobby Shmurda’s pending trial date which is scheduled for September. He’s also been incarcerated since 2014.
