Will YoungBoy Never Broke Again Get Outta Jail?
YoungBoy Never Broke Again may be released this week. The rapper’s recent arrest comes after a September 2020 incident.
Famous Rapper Defense Attorney Responds
Moreover, Mohammed Gangat, a New York-based attorney who often covers high profile rap cases comments on his client.
“The bond for YoungBoy out of California is $540,000,” he says in the clip. “He put up half a million in cash. In addition – as collateral – he put up two properties worth in excess of $1.5 million and he has to wear an ankle monitor. However, he’s not going to be on house arrest according to the bond set by the California judge. He simply has to wear the ankle monitor but otherwise is free to travel.”
Gangat added, “This is very big. Why? Given that the California judge found that these circumstances are sufficient for YoungBoy, why would a Louisiana find any differently? The Louisiana judge is looking at the same facts, he’s looking at the same charges and he’s making a decision under the exact same federal law. Sure, it’s a different court and a different circuit, and the way the laws are applied vary somewhat, it shouldn’t vary a lot.
“If this California judge said, ‘Hey, this much money and these restrictions are good,’ it would be very, very weird for a Louisiana judge to say, ‘Oh no, no amount of money and no restrictions.’ That would be very uncommon. I fully expect that the Louisiana judge on Tuesday will release YoungBoy.”
YoungBoy’s Alleged Crimes
In fact, YoungBoy was arrested in Baton Rouge for an alleged federal warrant. He was among 16 individuals stopped during a music video shoot where police discovered multiple guns and drugs. He went home that day. A judge ordered the police to immediately return a $300,000 check, jewelry and cash to the rapper.
Following his recent arrest, YoungBoy faces two counts of illegal possession of firearms by a felon in addition to possession of an unregistered weapon. Federal agents claim they discovered a .45 pistol and a 9mm handgun. YoungBoy acted in violation of his limitations as a felon.
