Remy Ma's Appeal Denied
Remy Ma Suffers Loss In '07 Shooting Case
Bronx rapper Remy Smith, better known as Remy Ma was hoping for an early release from prison for shooting of a homegirl of hers which resulted in a conviction in 2007.
The former Terror Squad member argued with a friend over $3000 and allegedly shot the woman. She was charged with criminal possession and two counts of assault and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Remy was hoping that an appeal citing a judge misinforming the jurors before they made their decision would work in her favor. Yesterday the Court of Appeals in New York denied the claim, forcing Smith to postpone the celebration she had hoped for.
In a recent interview with radio personality, Jenny Boom Boom, Remy mentioned that she was attempting to make it home before the summer. She also added that if none of her appeals worked, that she may have to spend another 3 years in the penitentiary.
Her husband, rapper Papoose, also spoke publicly about an early release for Remy,
"I highly doubt she will have to serve the full time. If justice is served, then she will come home now," Pap told Vibe magazine.
Unfortunately, she won't be home as soon as they would like, but she may not serve the full sentence.
Do you think the appeal should have passed?
