Gunna ‘s request was once again denied in the RICO case.
The Atlanta rapper will remain in jail until next year following allegations that he was a “documented” member of the alleged Young Slime Life street gang. A Fulton County judge previously denied the bond request on May 23.
According to 11Alive, his lawyers argued that there was not enough evidence to keep her locked up until the January 2023 trial date, but the judge accepted his previous ruling that she posed a threat to the public and could intimidate a witness if she intimidated a witness.
Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, was arrested in May and charged in a 56-issue RICO indictment involving Young Thug and other members of the YSL.
On his 29th birthday, the “pushin P” rapper reflected on his situation in a letter from prison.
“2022 has been one of the best years of my life, despite this difficult situation,” wrote he, who was charged with a single count of conspiracy to violate the RICO Act. “For now, I don’t have my freedom. But I am innocent. I am being falsely accused and will never stop fighting to clear my name!”
He called the accusations against him “ugly and untrue,” and remained confident that justice will be served. “I have all faith that God will grant me justice for the purity in my heart and the innocence of my actions,” he said.
Last month, Young Thug was also denied bond for the second time after a judge decided that he is a danger to the community and could intimidate other witnesses.
