It looks as though Lontrell Williams Jr, professionally known as Pooh Shiesty will remain behind bars until his trial date beginning in April. The 22-year-old rapper was arrested last year for two separate shootings, where he was facing a life sentence.
The rapper’s life sentence was reduced to an eight-year maximum following his decision to enter a guilty plea. Williams and his attorneys feel that the rapper should be out on bond until the date set for his sentencing, April 4th.
According to court documents, Shiesty has a “right to pretrial release under reasonable conditions is a fundamental right under both the Florida and federal Constitutions.”
The “Back in Blood” rapper’s motion with his attorney’s expressed that the 22-year-old does not pose a threat to the community as a music artist, and noted his good behavior and ability to comply since his arrest.
The motion was denied by the Florida judge, forcing Shiesty to remain behind bars until his sentencing in April. While this makes another one of Shiesty’s attempts to get out on bond a fail, the rapper still remains hopeful that he will come home. In a post on Instagram in December, written to his fans and loved ones, the rapper states that he won’t let this situation affect his mind.
“Ima Be Back In A Minute Won’t Be To Long Til I’m Free I LOVE ALL MY FANS AND THE ONES WHO STILL SUPPORTING ME ….
