Bobby Shmurda Denied Bail for Seventh Time

  /  01.19.2016

2016 is not looking up for Bobby Shmurda. The “Hot Boy” has been denied bail yet again.

On Tuesday (Jan. 19), New York City judge Abraham Clott told the court that he sees “no substantive change” in Shmurda and is “satisfied that the case is extraordinarily serious.”

Shmurda has now been denied bail seven times since his December 2014 arrest on drugs and weapons charges. Last month, his family attempted unsuccessfully to bail him out using their property as collateral.

The Brooklyn rapper’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, believes Shmurda’s $2 million bail is set too high. His net worth had been estimated at $20 million, which Spiro says is grossly exaggerated. According to him, the number is closer to $427,000 and bail should be in the $50-100,000 range.

The 21-year-old has been in jail for nearly a year for conspiracy to commit murder, multiple weapons possession, and reckless endangerment. His next court date is set for Feb. 22.
