Young Thug and Gunna received updates regarding their cases today. As previously reported, the two YSL rappers are incarcerated following their arrests for murder, robberies and RICO charges.
According to WSB-TV, attorneys for Young Thug will make their arguments for bond on June 2nd. Meanwhile, prosecutors have filed a motion to have Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, removed from the case, citing a conflict of interest. No further details have been revealed regarding Steel's removal from the case.
Gunna recently learned that his bond was denied and a trial date was set for January 2023. According to Fox 5 Atlanta, prosecutors argued against Gunna's bond due to him allegedly being one of the leaders of the YSL Gang.
Reporter Michael Seidan said, “Prosecutor Don Geary argued against bond, accusing Gunna of being one of the leaders of YSL. He claims that Gunna is in a 'command' position and has the ability to order hits and could intimidate witnesses. Gunna’s defense calls those claims false.”
Seiden also noted that before the judge made his decision against the bond, Gunna’s attorney’s proposed the following bond conditions: “$750K secured bond House Arrest w/ electronic monitoring Forfeiture of three properties Gunna’s parents will also put up their homes Allow prosecutors to record all phone calls.”
