One of the suspects who was charged in the fatal shooting of Young Dolph has been sentenced to two years in prison for violating a previous charge. However, he’s not getting sentenced for the murder of the slain rapper.
An ActionNews5 reporter reported that a suspect in the murder of the Memphis rapper was sentenced to two years in prison for violating the terms of his supervised release which is related to a past weapon charge.
Justin Johnson, aka Straight Dropp, pleaded guilty to violations such as, “not being regularly employed, missing mandatory drug screenings and therapy, failing to seek permission before leaving the jurisdiction, and being arrested.”
This news came up just after Johnson was attacked by a fellow inmate at Tennessee’s Shelby County Jail in March. According to TMZ, Johnson was punched in the face while he was on the phone in the jail’s visiting area. Lawyer Juni Ganguli said that his client was not seriously injured and that there was no motive present for the attack.
Johnson was arrested along with Cornelius Smith, 32, in connection with Dolph’s murder last November. Johnson now faces charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, employment of a firearm, and theft of property valued over $10,000.
Dolph’s autopsy reports revealed that the rapper suffered 22 gunshot wounds. He was shot in the chest, abdomen, chin, neck, shoulder, both arms, and multiple times in the back.
