Jayson Scott indicted on seven counts including first-degree murder.

Rapper Remy Ma‘s 23-year-old son, Jayson Scott, has been indicted on a seven-count indictment in connection to the fatal shooting of 47-year-old Darius Guillebeaux in South Jamaica, Queens.

Scott and his alleged accomplice, Richard Swygert, were both arraigned on Tuesday for the crime that took place on June 7, 2021.

Jayson Scott Charges

Jayson Scott is facing a serious set of charges:

  • Murder in the first degree
  • Murder in the second degree
  • Four counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree
  • Reckless endangerment in the first degree

Swygert, already in custody for another murder, was also charged for his role in Guillebeaux’s death.

The NYPD alleges that the fatal shooting followed a dispute. Swygert, 22, is also implicated in two other murders within an eight-month span, highlighting a disturbing pattern of violence.

Swygert’s Notorious Background

Richard Swygert’s criminal history is alarming. He is accused of:

  • The January 1, 2021 murder of 20-year-old Robert Williams outside the Umbrella Hotel in Kew Gardens.
  • The August 12, 2021 slaying of 22-year-old Dominick Malivert at the K-Show Bar on 138th Street in Flushing.

With connections to three murders within eight months, Swygert faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Both Scott and Swygert are being held without bail.

If convicted of the top count, Jayson Scott faces a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Their next court appearance is scheduled for July 31.

Remy Ma’s Statement

Remy Ma, through her attorney Dawn M. Florio, released a heartfelt statement expressing her unwavering support for her son. The statement reads:

As many have heard Remy ma’s son, Jayson Scott was recently arrested and very serious unfounded allegations have been made.

Remy Ma wished to address this situation personally, but has been strongly advised by our office not to say anything publicly – as most people in this situation are, as the case, is still active.

To be clear, Jayson Scott is innocent and Remy Ma is committed to proving his innocence and fully supporting her child during this time. 

We stand by Jayson’s innocence and hope the NYPD will conduct a complete and thorough investigation to reveal the truth.

This has undoubtedly been a trying time for Remy Ma and her family.

While she sincerely appreciates the love and support she has received we kindly as that her privacy be respected as our legal team works to prove Jayson’s innocence. 

Thank you for your understand and continued support.

The charges against Jayson Scott and Richard Swygert have brought a grim spotlight on a series of violent incidents in Queens.

As the legal proceedings move forward, the quest for truth and justice remains paramount.
