GS9 member, Rashid “Rasha” Derissant, was given a prison sentence of 98 1/3 years to life yesterday and this is not great news for what might come for Bobby Shmurda.
The office of New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor, Bridget G. Brennan, released a press release and it states the following:
“his role in gang warfare that extended from New York City to Miami, and involved murder and multiple attempted murders between January 2013 and October 2014.”
“the sentence imposed today reflects the terror that the defendant’s crimes instilled in his own community, and wherever else he engaged in wanton violence to settle scores. It also underscored the value of the lives lost and tragically damaged.”
Rasha was found guilty of murder, attempted murder, and conspiracy alongside GS9 associate, A-Rod. Both men were involved in the murder of a rival gang member. Rasha was found guilty of being the shooter.
Shmurda is currently awaiting trial, which was postponed a second time, and will start in September. According to Complex, Bobby Shmurda is suing the NYPD over claims of false arrest. We shall see how his trial plays put now that Rasha has been given such a hefty sentence.
