Bobby Shmurda sat in a Manhattan courthouse Wednesday morning and received a seven-year sentence in prison. At one point, he faced 25-to-life after being arrested in December 2014 for conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession.
Last month, he accepted a plea deal that lengthened his sentence from five to seven years and reduced Rowdy Rebel’s sentence from 12 to seven. But according to NY Daily News, Shmurda told Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Abraham Clot that his lawyers forced him to take the plea against his will. “I was forced to take this plea. I do not want to take this plea,” he said.“I want to drop my plea and fire you,” he told his lawyer.
Shmurda has already served two years of his sentence and could be released as early as in three and a half years.
