Bobby Shmurda will be out of that jam sooner than later. Bobby’s mother Leslie Pollard took to IG to announce her son as a little over two years remaining in his prison sentence.
She posted a photo of Bobby with a caption, reading, “One of those mornings but the time is ticking 25 months he will be here soon…. Can’t wait til Thursday to kiss his face.”
Bobby Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in prison in October 2016 after pleading guilty to charges of 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession.
Bobby will also be required to serve five years probation after his term. He could’ve have faced 25 years to life in prison if he was convicted on charges of conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia.
Bobby waived his right to appeal as part of the plea deal.
“I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence,” Bobby told the court, according to Billboard. “I was forced by my attorney to take this plea.”
Bobby told Complex during an interview he took the plea deal to save Rowdy Rebel.
Bobby said he could’ve taken a five-year deal, but declined.
“I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12,” Bobby told Complex. “They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs.”
But Billboard reports Bobby was upset in court, saying, “They lied to me.”
Bobby had been in jail since his arrest at Manhattan’s Quad Studios in December 2014.
