Bobby Shmurda is doing time for multiple charges, but one of his sentences may get reduced.

Bobby Shmurda is already serving seven years for conspiracy charges, but while he was behind bars awaiting trial, he racked up a separate contraband charge. In 2015 his girlfriend allegedly attempted to sneak a shank to him during a visit to Rikers Island. According to reports, the woman was carrying a sharp object in a black latex glove that she attempted to pass to him. The guards caught them in the act and confiscated the sharp object. The stunt wound up getting Shmurda arrested while he was already in prison. Both of them pleaded not guilty to “attempted promoting prison contraband.”

The rapper, born Ackquille Jean Pollard, went before a judge this week to face the charges which could get him another seven-year sentence. However, prosecutors are offering a plea deal which could narrow the sentence down to four years that will run concurrently with the sentence he is already serving. 

Shmurda’s lawyers are reportedly urging their client to take the deal. He has until Jan. 7 to make a decision.

The “Hot N*gga” rapper has been sitting behind bars since December 14, 2014, just months after he signed a record deal with Epic Records.
