Just after being officially sentenced to seven years in prison Wedsnday morning (Oct.19) Bobby Shmurda, is regretting the terms of his plea deal.
The New York Daily News reports the rapper immediately retracted the plea deal he accepted last month to benefit his GS9 brethren Rowdy Rebel Flea Montana. Once the gavel banged, Shmurda refused to sign any required waivers and documents.
“I was forced to take this sentence. I don’t want to take this sentence,” Shmurda said. As his frustrated lawyer Alex Spiro stood alongside him in the courtroom, Bobby turned to Spiro and said, “I want to drop my plea and fire you … Why are you telling me to waive my rights? I am not waiving my rights.”
Days before his court date, Shmurda pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the fourth degree and criminal possession. According to the deal, Shmurda would spend seven years with time served behind bars. Today, the judge announced the sentence for one count of one count of conspiracy and one count of weapons possession along with five years probation.
In a recent interview, Shmurda claimed he accepted the deal to help reduce his boy Rowdy Rebel’s sentence. Now sadly, Shmurda wants nothing to do with the plea and refuses to accept probation after his sentence his up. One mistake while under post-release supervision could earn him more time behind bars. The “Hot N*gga” rapper is expected back in court to appeal the probation clause on Nov. 19th.
