Bobby Shmurda made an appearance in an NYC court on Thursday and plead not guilty to felony and misdemeanor charges of promoting prison contraband. The new charges stem from an incident where his girlfriend allegedly tried to slip him a blade during a visit.
Prison guards allegedly caught his 18-year-old girlfriend Kimberly Rousseau pulling a “sharp metal object” from her bra to hand to Shmurda during a visit last month. Prosecutors say he then lied about the incident during a grand jury hearing. Rousseau had also pleased not guilty to promoting prison contraband.
If convicted, Bobby could face an additional 7 years in prison on top of whatever he might be hit with if found guilty on the extensive charges from his December 2014 arrest. Meanwhile, his label still doesn’t seem interested in bailing him out. The Guardian notes that his next court appearance isn’t until October of this year.
