New York prosecution added 32 more charges onto the original indictment for Bobby Shmurda and GS9.
Shmurda entered a not guilty plea at the Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday. His former attorney, Howard Greenberg, previously stated to news outlets that he believed the gun charge against Shmurda would be dropped. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The Brooklyn District Attorney’s office is still pursuing it and Greenberg is no longer representing Shmurda .
The new charges include second degree criminal possession of a weapon, third degree criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of a firearm. Shmurda’s new attorney, Kenneth Montgomery, requested a special bail hearing for February 2nd and is seeking to reduce the bail which is currently set at $2 million. The judge denied the request for the special bail hearing.
Shmurda and GS9’s next court date is set for April 22.
