Pooh Shiesty might spend the rest of his life in prison after being accused of shooting a thief in the buttocks during a robbery in Florida.
If Shiesty is found guilty of all charges, he may be sentenced to life in jail, according to Rolling Stone.
During a confrontation in an October 2020 hotel room involving a hired McLaren, narcotics, and expensive sneakers,
the “Back in Blood” rapper, whose actual name is Lontrell Williams, is accused of shooting a man in the buttocks.
During the getaway, a Louis Vuitton bag containing $40,912 in cash fell from Williams’ McLaren; authorities believe the serial numbers on one of the recovered notes matched a $100 bill flashed on Williams’ Instagram account days prior to the crime.
Last May, at the King of Diamonds nightclub in Miami, Williams, 21,
allegedly shot a security guard in the ankle after drawing a semi-automatic weapon from his belt and waving it around.
An indictment that calls for a four-count trial is set to commence on October 25th.
According to reports, Pooh Shiesty faces the possibility of a sentence of life in prison for his suspected involvement in a crime in Florida. He is suspected of shooting a man in the buttocks during an October 2020 failed robbery that included the rental of a McLaren, cocaine, and expensive sneakers. The rapper is known for his song “Back in Blood.”
But wait, there’s more. Pooh Shiesty has also been charged with brandishing a semi-automatic weapon near the King of Diamonds nightclub in Miami in May. A security guard was struck in the ankle after he allegedly fired a shot at him. On October 25, he’ll be tried for federal drug charges stemming from a four-count indictment.
However, this does not imply that his peers do not support him. Juicy J tweeted early on Thursday morning (October 7): “Free @pooh shiesty. Mane, our prayers are with you.”
This week, Pooh Shiesty, who is already serving time in prison, sent a letter to his fans from there. He timed it perfectly with the start of the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards.
The mane remarked, “Live from the cell,” as he entered. “Turn on the muthafuckin’ BET Awards now. The nominations we got were enormous,” he said, referring to Lil Durk’s bars on “Back In Blood” being nominated for Song Of The Year, Best New Hip Hop Artist, Best Collaboration, and Best Featured Verse. “Go tune in,” he said as an afterthought. Mane, thanks for mentioning Meek Mill. The real deal.”
When it comes to Pooh Shiesty and his legal team, speed is of the essence. Despite their initial appeal for additional time to prove he was never a part of a “drug-trafficking conspiracy,” they abandoned their request to delay the federal trial on Monday (October 4)…
In view of the extensive discovery, his attorneys explained, “[It’s] in their best interest to move to trial [in three weeks].”
A failed drug and sneaker transaction led to Pooh Shiesty’s original arrest in October of last year for the aforementioned Bay Harbor Islands, Florida double shooting.
