In December 2014, Bobby Shmurda and a number of associates were arrested on a list of charges including murder, conspiracy, weapons, and assault charges. Though Bobby hasn’t gone to trial yet, a few of his reported associates have already stood trial and been convicted.
“Rashid Derissant and Alex Crandon have been convicted of the February 2013 murder of a 19-year-old rival gang member in Brooklyn, New York. They are reported members of the GS9 gang of which Bobby Shmurda is also reportedly a member.”
Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan, in a statement, seemed pleased at the verdict.
“As indicated by their verdict, the jurors in this trial heard evidence describing a cold blooded murder, wild gunplay and a terrifying disregard for the safety of innocent bystanders as the defendants tried to violently settle scores with rivals in New York City and beyond.”
There was a long list of convictions for Rashid and Alex.
“[They] were found guilty of Conspiracy in the Second and Fourth Degrees, Murder in the Second Degree, multiple counts of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, Assault in the First and Second Degrees, Attempted Assault in the First Degree, Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree and Criminal Use of a Firearm in the First Degree.”
Bobby will go on trial for weapons, drugs and conspiracy charges on May 11th.
