Tekashi 6ix9ine snitch sentenced
After joining the Bloods and getting caught up in a crime spree which involved several shootings and assaults around New York City, (which he claims was “in an attempt to promote a gangster persona which would help him sell his music and advance his career”) the snitch bitch rapper had pleaded guilty to racketeering, firearms and drug trafficking charges.
Judge Paul Engelmayer said that Tekashi 6ix9ine was a “central figure in a vicious and brutal gang” whom he said caused mayhem around the city and used the gang as his “personal hit squad.”
However, Engelmayer balanced those crimes with the rapper’s snitching extensive cooperation with government investigators. Prosecutors had requested that he receive a reduced sentence because of his “extraordinary” and “substantial” cooperation.
He was also sentenced to five years  of supervised release and 300 hours of community service. However, since he has already served about 13 months behind bars, he is due to be released in late 2020.

Boxer Adrien Broner Ordered to Pay Over $800K to His Sexual Assault Victim!!!

18 Dec

Adrien_BronerLooks like its time for the star boxer, Adrien Broner to put back on his gloves because a Clevland court has ordered him to empty out his cash drawer to a woman he was convicted  of assaulting in a Cleveland nightclub.

According to the victim’s civil complaint, back in June of 2018, Broner “thrust himself on to [the victim], pinned her beneath his body, and began kissing her.” The victim said she struggled to free herself but was unable to push him off of her as he stuck his tongue down her throat, kissed her neck and body, and continued pressing himself on her. One of Mr. Broner’s friends reportedly pulled him off of her, after a bystander snapped a photo of the assault.

The crime was immediately reported to the Cleveland Police Dept.

On April 8, 2019, the former welterweight champ pleaded guilty to assault and unlawful restraint, and was sentenced to probation. And as far as the civil suit goes, Broner did not appear at the hearing to contest the damages.

Welp, Broner was hit with a $830,000 judgment in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday, in connection with a June 2018 incident at The Park Social Lounge in Cleveland, according to the plaintiff’s attorney Subodh Chandra.

 

 

NBA Youngboy Gets Early Release from Probation; Plans to Ditch Louisiana for LA

15 Dec

NBA YoungBoy was released from court supervision Friday after a judge in Baton Rouge, Louisiana agreed to terminate his probation early, noting he’s complied with all its conditions over the past several months.

The judge’s decision, which came over objections from prosecutors, brings an end to the rapper’s longstanding legal troubles in Louisiana. NBA YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, is now free to do whatever he wants, including schedule performances, release music and even move out of state. And that’s just what he plans to do.

Youngboy’s lawyer, James Manasseh, said his client is planning to leave his Baton Rouge hometown and possibly relocate to Los Angeles for a bigger market and better opportunities to pursue his burgeoning career.

“Being in Baton Rouge isn’t conducive to him being able to grow and move forward,” Manasseh said after the hearing Friday, calling Gaulden a “genuinely good hearted, generous, sweet young man” who works hard for his success.

The judge had given Gaulden a suspended 10-year prison term in August 2017 and put him on probation for three years after he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a firearm in the 2016 shooting. But Jackson decided Friday that the rapper had served enough time under court supervision — 28 months on probation — and released him.

WBRZ reports Davaughn was charged with second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, while Jeffrey and Anderson were initially charged with principal to second-degree murder, principal to illegal use of a weapon, and simple battery. On Thursday, however, a judge decided Jeffrey would be charged with murder and stand trial as an adult.

Although YoungBoy has said he only has one brotherWBRZ pointed to court records that indicate the rapper shares the same father with the Tate brothers.

Chicago’s Civil Lawsuit Against Jussie Smollett Could Be Dismissed

7 Sep

Jussie Smollett‘s lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss a civil lawsuit against him seeking $130K.

Its no secret that actor Jussie Smollett best known for his leading role on the television series Empire, has been accused of making up an elaborate story of being the victim of an attack outside his apartment in Chicago by two men who allegedly had on MAGA caps. Two hunky Nigerian aspiring actors later admitted that they were the MAGA guys but claimed they were put up to the whole thing by Smollett himself.

Criminal charges stemming from the incident were dropped back in March after Cook County’s top prosecutor, Kim Foxx declined to prosecute the actor after Jussie forfeited his $10,000 bond and agreed to perform community service. However, the City of Chicago continued its public campaign to derail the actor, with everyone from the mayor to police chief holding press conferences shaming the actor for allegedly filing a false police report. (Even if true, he wouldn’t have been the first person of privilege to file a false police report, and he certainly won’t be the last.)

Then Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it a “whitewash of justice” and suggested Smollett received special treatment: “You cannot have, because of a person’s position, one set of rules apply to them and another set of rules apply to everybody else.”

Donald Trump Tweets About Jussie Smollett

Even US President Donald Trump threw in his 3 cents, tweeting: “FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!” ABC7 Chicago reported that the “FBI is reviewing the circumstances surrounding the dismissal of criminal charges.” According to TMZ, the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police filed a complaint with the Department of Justice.

The actor was later fired from Empire. To make matters worse, the city of Chicago sued the Jussie Smollett seeking reimbursement for the $130K they spent vigorously investigating the alleged hoax attack.  The Chicago Police Department claims to have logged 1,836 hours in overtime trying to resolve the case.

Lawyers for the actor are now asserting that while Smollett is not admitting he staged the incident,  the decision to spend so much time and resources investigating is squarely on law enforcement.

“My client from the beginning has maintained his innocence and disputed the city’s allegations,” said William J. Quinlan, of The Quinlan Law Firm, who filed the motion. He noted that “it’s going to be very difficult for the city to prevail in making a case my client should pay for overtime for a case ultimately dismissed by the state’s attorney.

“It’s ridiculous and a stretch to require him to do so.” “This lawsuit was only filed by the former mayor … out of frustration for the state’s attorney dismissing the charges,” said Quinlan.

U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall, who is hearing the case, said she will rule in October on whether the city could move forward with its lawsuit to redeem the costs.
