We most surely aren’t deer in headlights when it comes to the mind boggling attempts to free YSL members Gunna and Young Thug in the past couple of weeks, but it seems we just keep getting more and more surprised as we deliver today’s report!
To begin, Gunna was denied bond again earlier today, and he will now be held in jail until his trial begins in January 2023.
Prosecutors have argued that Gunna is a leader in YSL and that if he is released on bond, he will be able to intimidate witnesses.
Prosecutors claimed during Gunna's bond hearing on Thursday that the DS4 artist was responsible for another incident at the Fulton County Jail in May.
According to WSBTV, on May 14, a nurse was apprehended attempting to smuggle cocaine and marijuana into the jail for Gunna.
When confronted with the drugs by an officer, the nurse attempted to flee.
Prosecutors said during the bond hearing on Thursday, July 7, that some of the drugs in the bag were intended for Gunna, which his attorney denies.
According to a motion filed earlier this week, prosecutors in the case have allegedly learned of numerous threats against witnesses who have claimed "that they fear not only for their own lives but for the lives of their families should they testify."
This prompted the case's presiding judge, Judge Ural Glanville, to issue a new protective order for the witnesses.
The order "forces defense lawyers to withhold witnesses' contact information from their clients," according to the New York Times.
Lawyers for both Young Thug and Gunna have denied any wrongdoing.
