Bobby Shmurda To Stay In Jail, Trial Pushed Back


All Hip Hop News reports Bobby Shmurda was supposed to see a day in court, but his trial has yet again, been pushed back to September.

The news was confirmed by Kati Cornell, the Director of Public Information at the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor in New York, to XXL.

The Brooklyn native was supposed to go to trial on Feb. 22, then May 1, then May 12 and now it is set for Sept. 12.

In a turn of events,  it was the four defendants that requested the delay through their attorneys.

Alex Spiro represents Bobby Shmurda, who was born Ackquille Pollard. Attorney Javier Solano represents Rowdy Rebel. Kevin Canefield is the lawyer for Cueno and Leslie Jones-Thomas will defend Montana Flea.

Shmurda has waged his own counterstrike against the NYPD for wrongful arrest.

The rapper claims he was the target of a wrongful and warrantless search after police rushed into a friend’s Brooklyn apartment he was in on Dec. 17, 2014. He was arrested, but claimed that none of the illegal materials was his.
