Eight of the Potential 65 Charges Against Young Thug in the YSL Rico Trial
In the lengthy RICO case against his young Slime Life (YSL) gang, Thug is accused of eight crimes.
On January 4, 2023, as jury selection in the trial in Fulton County, Georgia got underway, the charges against Atlanta rapper “Jeffrey Williams,” actual name Jeffrey Williams, were confirmed in court documents.
Prosecutors claim that Thug and other YSL members are part of a “Criminal Street Gang” connected to the ‘Bloods’ who are responsible for a number of violent crimes in the Atlanta area, including murder and armed robbery. The RICO indictment against them includes a total of 65 counts.
28 YSL members were detained in the RICO case, but only 14 remains today, including Young Thug, who was one of the original 28. In recent weeks, a number of defendants have entered into plea agreements, including Gunna, who was let go from prison last month after admitting guilt to a single racketeering crime. Although Young Thug has maintained his innocence, the plea agreements are anticipated to make his struggle for freedom much more difficult.
Antonio “Mounk Tounk” Sledge acknowledged in court during the acceptance of his negotiated plea in December that one or more YSL members were responsible for the 2015 murder of Donovan Thomas and that Young Thug had paid him and other YSL members to “lie low” after the crime.
Sledge, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the RICO Act and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and received a 15-year probationary sentence, promised to testify at the trial if necessary.
