It looks like there's been a resolution in the Bobby Shmurda murder conspiracy case, as TMZ is reporting the rapper has copped a plea deal in court today. According to the report, the deal will get Shmurda seven years in prison and five years probation. The MC was charged and arrested for a number of crimes back in 2014 and has been in prison ever since.
Specifically, Shmurda was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and numerous weapons violations. In total, 15 members of his GS9 crew were charged in the case for various acts. Throughout Shmurda's case his legal team made numerous attempts to get their client out on bail, but every request was denied by a judge. According to the TMZ report, Shmurda's lawyer implored him to take the plea deal in court Friday because he believed they wouldn't get a sympathetic jury and were facing life in prison.
Shmurda has served nearly two years at Rikers Island, and the time will get deducted from his sentence. Back in May, two members of the GS9 crew were sentenced to over 50 years in prison for their roles in the case. According to FOX 5 News' Lisa Evers, Rowdy Rebel and Nicholas McCoy, also known as "GS9," pleaded guilty and will receive a seven-year sentence.
