Young Thug’s recent court hearing was interrupted after someone on the Zoom call showcased a pornographic video.
Per The Atlanta Journal Constitution, a Zoom call was set up in the courtroom to allow attorneys to tune into the hearing remotely, and at one point a video showing a completely naked man was showcased on the screens. The clip was accompanied by a message that read, “Free Young Thug.” In the moments the video was on display, deputies in the courtroom quickly tried to turn off the screens.
Despite the pornographic video causing a disturbance and a subsequent delay in the courtroom, Thugger was able to walk away with a win on Thursday. Per FOX5, Fulton County Judge Ural Glanville ruled that evidence seized during the raid on Thug’s home in 2015 could not be used against him as evidence in his upcoming trial. His defense argued that the raid was not lawful, and as such requested that all of seized property including a cell phone and a computer be returned to the rapper.
Prosecutors hoped to use the cell phone as evidence against Thug, real name Jeffery Lamar Williams, in next month’s trial.
The latest developments in Thug’s case comes as Gunna, who named alongside his close collaborator in a sweeping RICO indictment earlier this year, was freed from custody after accepting a plea deal.
