Incarcerated Rapper Bobby Shmurda Has Reportedly Been Denied Bail Once Again And Will Stay In Jail Leading Up To His Upcoming Drug-dealing And Weapons-possession Trial.
The hip-hop star, real name Ackquille Pollard, has been in a New York correctional facility since December, 2014 following his arrest from a police sting in Manhattan.
He was charged with conspiracy counts, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and more, and his bail was set at $2 million (GBP1.25 million).
A trial date for Pollard and 14 members of his entourage had been set for Monday (05Oct15), but at the hearing, Judge James Burke set a new trial date for 22 February (16), according to Page Six.
The 21-year-old rapper's attorney objected to the four-month postponement, and requested Pollard be released pending the trial.
The newspaper reports special narcotics prosecutor Nigel Farinha argued Pollard has already been denied at least four bail applications, and Judge Burke subsequently sided with the prosecution.
In June (15), Pollard rejected a plea deal to serve eight years in prison. If convicted in the upcoming trial, he faces up to 25 years behind bars.
