Gunna will remain in jail after a Georgia judge denied his bond for a second time on Monday (May 23).
The rapper, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, is one of 28 people indicted in a sweeping RICO criminal case against YSL (Young Slime Life.)
Gunna’s attorney, Steve Sadow, proposed a list of conditions for the rapper’s bond including a $750,000 secured bond, house arrested with electric monitoring, forgetter of three properties, and his parents offering to put up their homes.
Prosecutor Don Geary argued that Gunna should be denied bond because he allegedly has a command position within YSL, directing hits on rival gang members.
Sadow fired back calling the allegations false and added that Gunna has no intentions of directing hits.
He even offered to allow a wire top on Gunna’s phones.
Judge Ural Glanville sided with the prosecution and denied bond for the safety of the witnesses in the case.
He set Gunna’s trial date for January 9, 2023.
Judge Glanville also delayed making a decision in regards to Young Thug’s bond so that he could first rule on the prosecutor’s claim that the rapper’s attorney, Brian Steel, should be disqualified from the case over a conflict of interest.
We previously reported, Young Thug’s attorney filed for an emergency bond hearing saying that the rapper’s current in-custody housing is “inhumane” and “torturous” at Cobb County Jail.
Today’s hearing comes roughly two weeks after prosecutors unveiled a jaw-dropping 88-page indictment against 28 members of Young Slime Life.
The indictment claims the group is not a musical operation but actually a violent street gang.
The charges include allegations of illegal firearm possession, drug dealing, armed robbery, carjacking, and murder.
