Ok, that had to be the quickest murder trial in history. Apparently your boy avoided a murder conviction but got hit with involuntary manslaughter and assault charges. He was sentenced to 11 1/2 to 23 months in prison.
The rapper could possibly be out of jail in a few months because of time already served in prison. The rapper has been incarcerated since June.
At the non-jury trial, Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan said that rapper was negligent in providing guns to assailants that eventually killed Desmond Hawkins, a 22-year-old Philadelphia man.
"You could be a leader in the community," Greenspan said according to the Associated Press. "All those guns – that’s why Desmond is gone now, because of all those guns."
In court, the rapper expressed remorse for the crime. "It’s a tragic situation for me too. I didn’t set up for this to happen. Desmond Hawkins was my friend … one of my closest friends,” he told the judge.
