Gunna Was Denied Bond Again And Will Remain In Custody Until His Trial In January
Young Thug, Gunna, Duke, and several other members of YSL Records were implicated in a lengthy Georgia RICO indictment on May 9. One of the first accused musicians to be detained was Young Thug, and shortly after the indictment was made public, Gunna also turned himself in. On May 23, Gunna’s request for bond was rejected by the court after the prosecution contended that the “pushin P” rapper is actually a known member of the YSL gang and a lethal leader inside the group.
Gunna went to court more than a month later for a bond review, but the DS4EVER artist was once again refused bond.
WSBTV reports that the Atlanta rapper virtually appeared in court today in an effort to be released on a “extreme bond that would include house arrest and recorded phone lines,” but prosecutors reportedly urged the judge to keep Gunna in jail due to his alleged leadership role in YSL so that he is unable to potentially intimidate witnesses.
Gunna has maintained his innocence throughout the entire ordeal, and on June 14 he tweeted an open letter asking for his release and the preservation of Black art.
“Growing up from where I come from in a marginalized neighborhood, I never dreamt my art would change my life and the lives of my loved ones,” Gunna stated in the letter. “We still pushing P: Power, Prayer, Progress, Passion, Productivity, Praise, Precision, Peace, Prosperity, Patience, Pride, and Persistence.”
The YSL Gang Indictment trial, in which Gunna, Young Thug, and other YSL artists will participate, is currently scheduled for January 9th, 2023.
