NBA YoungBoy is used to getting in trouble and he has plenty of opps. He is also in the midst of a heated court case that could land him in prison for years.
The Louisiana rapper is facing federal firearms charges. If he is convicted, Never Broke Again could face seven years behind bars. A trial date has now been set in the case.
YoungBoy will face the jury on May 16 in Louisiana’s Middle District, the court revealed on Monday. The news came just days after a judge suppressed a large amount of video evidence relating to the case. YoungBoy’s attorney, Drew Findling, told Rolling Stone that the defense team is feeling confident.
“We’re 100 percent convinced of his innocence, and now we have to continue to evaluate our strategy. The unconstitutionality of law enforcement was clearly evident to the court and resulted in a slew of evidence of being thrown out. We’re looking forward to going to court.”
Judge Shelly Dick ruled on February 24, 2022, that video evidence that showed NBA YoungBoy in possession of one or more firearms was found via an improper search. The video was uncovered from SD cards by Baton Rouge police during YoungBoy’s arrest in September of 2020. The warrant was found to be invalid.
NBA YoungBoy is currently serving house arrest as he awaits trial. The rapper plead not guilty to charges that he possessed an unregistered Masterpiece Arms 9mm and a .45 Glock Model 21 pistol while as a felon. The serious charges could land NBA YoungBoy in prison during the prime of his career.
NBA YoungBoy hasn’t been overly concerned with the upcoming trial. A feud with Lil Durk over the death of King Von has been his primary focus. Now that he has a court date set, YoungBoy should probably start working on a defense strategy.
