gaosudin.com – On Thursday (December 15), a hearing in Young Thug’s RICO case began at around 2:00 p.m., after 9:00 a.m., due to technical problems, including a naked man appearing on screens in court.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, suicide bomber Zoom interrupted the hearing when the Atlanta rapper’s attorney, Brian Steele, asked to suppress evidence in the indictment against 25 other defendants allegedly linked to Young Stoner Life.
A naked man flashed the message “Free the young thugs” before the deputies turned off all the screens. The Zoom bombing came after the court session was delayed for several hours due to an unrelated technical issue.
During the hearing, Steele moved to dismiss the case, but the judge denied the motion shortly after 6:00 p.m. The judge has also considered whether to allow some evidence in the trial of Thug (real name Jeffrey Williams) scheduled for January.
Prosecutors argued that the court did not find it illegal to enter his home and that they discovered evidence in a warrant against the rapper, including a cell phone that allegedly contained relevant evidence.
The defense argued that the thug’s entry into the house was illegal, meaning that anything taped inside the house should not have been taken and should have been returned immediately after the action. A judge ruled that the mobile phone was inadmissible as evidence at the next trial.
The hearing comes just a day after fellow YSL rapper Gunna signed a plea and was released from Fulton County Jail. He is not required to testify against any other person charged in the RICO indictment.
Jury selection for the trial will begin Jan. 5.
