Bobby Shmurda is serving a 7-year sentence for conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon, but is still getting additional time. Yesterday (Feb. 2), the Brooklyn rapper plead guilty to sneaking a shank into jail.
Fortunately for Bobby, the 1.3 to 4-year sentence he just caught will run currently with his time for conspiracy and weapon possession.
The “Hot N***a” rapper Thursday pled guilty to one count of attempted promoting prison contraband – a nonviolent felony – telling Bronx Supreme Court Judge Marc Whitten that he did indeed try to bring a “sharp metal object” into New York’s Rikers Island jail in 2015 before cops caught him.
“Is it true that on that date…that you did, in fact, possess a white latex glove balloon wrapped in tape with a sharp metal object?” Judge Whitten asked.
“Attempted, yes sir,” Shmurda responded.
The plea was part of a deal to make most of the charges from the incident go away. Prosecutors said Shmurda’s gal pal, Kimberly Rousseau, passed him a “sharpened metal object” during a jail visit to Rikers Island last year. They then said he lied about the incident to the Grand Jury. Rousseau has since pled guilty to promoting prison contraband.
Shmurda could’ve gotten seven years just for the perjury charge had the case gone to trial.
Shmurda is now in protective custody after an inmate tried to stab him a month ago.
The conclusion of the case comes as the Department of Corrections moved Shmurda eight hours away from Downstate Prison in Brooklyn to Clinton Correctional Facility near Canada after another inmate tried to stab him during a mealtime a month ago, Allen DeWane, the family’s spokesman, told BOSSIP. The rapper felt someone approaching him from behind, and was able to narrowly miss the attack.
“These are lowlives,” DeWane told BOSSIP. “They think they can score brownie points if they get a star.
Shmurda has to serve the remainder of his time in protective custody because the Bloods gang have targeted him for assault, DeWayne said. Clinton has a special program for inmates in protective custody, he said.
Shmurda will reportedly be eligible for parole in 2021.
