Kim Kardashian took to social media to show support for Gunna. The rapper, along with Young Thug, were arrested with several of their alleged YSL associates months back after being indicted on RICO charges.
Kardashian tweeted yesterday (July 20th), “#FreeGunna.”
In other news, the rapper's lawyer has filed a new petition for a ‘writ of habeas corpus’– a constitutional procedure that allows prisoners to challenge their imprisonment. Lawyers for Gunna argue that Fulton County prosecutors have not provided substantial evidence to keep him incarcerated.
His attorneys wrote, “To allow Mr. Kitchens to be held in jail by the unsworn claims and conclusions of the state, devoid of any specific facts or supporting evidence – over objection by the defense – is to render his presumption of innocence meaningless and to discard his right to due process.”
Gunna's attorney continued, “Repeatedly, the state proffered shocking and conclusory facts and then gave no basis as to how it believed this information was accurate and gave no nexus between the ‘facts’ and Mr. Kitchens. Without the proper tools of cross examination, the defense was powerless to respond.”
This comes after a Fulton County judge denied Gunna’s two attempts to be granted bond.
As of now, both Gunna and Young Thug are expected to remain in jail until his January 2023 trial date.
