Bobby Shmurda Accepts Plea Deal; Sentenced To Seven Years In Prison

blame it on Patrick Glynn September 9, 2016

Bobby Shmurda has been in prison for almost two years.

In mid-December 2014, Shmurda and 14 other people from his GS9 crew were arrested during a sting that bore charges from murder, reckless endangerment, various weapons charges and conspiracy to commit murder.

Shmurda specifically received one count of conspiracy in the second degree, three counts of conspiracy in the fourth degree, one count of reckless endangerment, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and one count of criminally using drug paraphernalia in the second degree. Bobby could’ve faced anywhere from eight to 25 years in prison.

He tried to get out of jail on bail multiple times since he was arrested and was denied every time.

Today, though, TMZ reports Shmurda — real name Ackquille Pollard — has accepted a plea deal.

He’ll accepted seven years with another five years probation.

It’s unclear if the seven years will be tacked on to his time already served (a year and nine months, or 21 months) or if he now has another five years and three months on his sentence.

Stay tuned for more details on the deal.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Bobby will be credited for the time he has spent incarcerated.

According to a statement sent to FADER by Shmurda’s lawyer, Alex Spiro said that “His sentence of 7 years, with credit for 2 years already served and good time credit will hopefully permit him to be home in approximately 3 ½ years and resume his remarkable career. This plea also covers a separate Bronx Indictment.”
