As with Corey “C-Murder” Miller, another rapper has been hit in a bad way as they might see themselves behind an 8X11 prison cell for the remainder of their life. Rapper Max B, legally known as Charly Wingate, received a dishearteningly verdict today as he was sentenced to 75 years in prison.
The conviction and sentence comes from his role in a botched robbery that resulted in a felony murder within hotel in New Jersey. Max B, along with Kevin Leerdam appeared in court in Hackensack, New Jersey and were convicted on charges of felony murder, kidnapping and armed robbery.
Leerdam was worst off after the trial came to a close as he was given a life sentence for his crime along with an additional 35 years that was tied to his role in the murder.
Oddly enough, Max B.’s girlfriend, Gina Conway, had a hand in delivering the guilty verdict as she testified against the two during their trial that took place back in June. Conway was actually an active participant in the crime as she helped plan the robbery. She is currently looking at an 18-year sentence.
The actual incident happened in September 2006 at a Holiday Inn when they made an attempt to rob Allan Plowden and David Taylor. The result was the murder of Taylor as he was shot and killed.
Prior to receiving his sentence, the Harlem rapper had signed a deal with Amalgam Digital and he was in the process of releasing his debut album Vigilante Season as part of a three-album deal with the digital label.
