Accused Killer Of Akon Protege Dolla Found Not Guilty On All Charges
Aubrey Louis Berry was found not guilty on all charges including first degree murder to upcoming Atlanta rap star and Akon protege Roderick Anthony Burton II aka Dolla.
The 24-year-old music promoter who has been in jail since May 18th 2009 was released yesterday and walked away a free man.
Berry pleaded not guilty, and testified last week that he acted in self defense. Stating a case that Dolla threatened to kill him and that he believed he had a gun. Prosecutors tried to explain that police never found a weapon on Dolla, and that the gun shot to the head was because the rapper was fleeing. However, the jury believed there was not enough evidence to prove the case.
Berry's law team emphasized Burton's music and online videos were examples of his supposed gang ties.
They also said that the altercation of a fight that the two were in at an Atlanta strip club just prior to a shooting, was enough reason that Dolla would have a gun and kill Berry the next time he saw him.
Smh…sometimes it seems like the government never gives these rappers justice.
