Bobby Shmurda Sentenced To Four Years In Prison For Having Shank


(Michael Schwartz/New York Daily News)

Bobby Shmurda can finally close the chapter on his second case. Bobby was sentenced to four years in prison for possessing a shank in Rikers Island, the New York Post reports.

Bobby was accused of having his girlfriend smuggle a shank in her bra in June 2015. Prison guards allegedly saw Kimberly Rosseau, 18, take a “home-made knife” out of her bra and pass it to Shmurda.

Bobby was indicted on charges of perjury, weapons possession and promoting prison contraband a month later. Shmurda’s perjury charges reportedly came after prosecutors say the “Hot N*gga” rapper lied to a grand jury about it.

Shmurda pleaded not guilty during his arraignment. He faced up to seven years.

Luckily for Bobby, he will serve the time concurrent with his current seven-year sentence.

Bobby, wearing a white shirt and khaki pants with his covered in protective mitts, kept his words short during sentence.

When Judge Marc Whitten asked Shmurda if he had anything to say, he muttered, “No sir.”

Bobby left the court with his head bowed.

Bobby is currently serving seven years in prison after pleading guilty in September to charges of 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession, according to Billboard.

Bobby’s attorney Paul London told the New York Daily News Ms. Rosseau was a fan who got him caught up.

“Mr. Pollard had numerous fans try to track down his info, and they would say numerous names such as his moth and sister,” he said. “As soon as he realized it wasn’t who he thought it was, he got up.”

London continued, “We all make mistakes. [Bobby] wants to show the kids that you can make a mistake and turn your life around. That is what his lyrics are about.”

Prosecutors say a correction officer saw Rikers Island visitor Kimberly Rousseau reach inside her bra and pass a white latex balloon wrapped in black electrical tape containing the blade, according to the Daily News.

Rousseau accepted a plea deal for her crime, and was granted probation.

Bobby is expected to be released from prison on June 16, 2022. He is eligible for parole on June 16, 2021.
