After being caught with a cell phone in jail, a judge concluded that YSL member Yak Gotti is a threat to witnesses and refused to release him. Prosecutors believe that YSL is a Bloods subgroup. Officials claim the gang is involved in drug trafficking, killings, and murders as part of a conflict with the YFN gang, which includes musician YFN Lucci.
Yak Gotti appeared in court recently for a bond hearing. According to AllHipHop, Jay Abt, the rapper’s lawyer, contended that prosecutors were improper to use the rapper’s lyrics against him, and that their actions would have a “chilling effect” on Atlanta’s music business.
He is signed to a nationally recognized recording label. He’s had one platinum and two gold records. He’s got a child who is 7 years old, Dawson, who he helps to raise with that child’s mother. He’s lived in Atlanta his whole life. He’s got a lot of community support. Friends, family, business associates.
Prosecutors, on the other hand, have accused Yak Gotti of gang activities since his detention in May. He was caught using another inmate’s phone codes to use the phone inside the facility, according to authorities. Prosecutors said Yak Gotti was using the code to avoid getting caught conspiring to break into the jail with a cell phone.
Yak Gotti was a big hit. However, investigators were aware that he had a phone in the jail. The phones were ultimately found and taken away. Yak Gotti had an uphill battle from the outset.
He is accused of murdering Donovan “Big Nut” Thomas, and he was found guilty after committing a traffic infraction with a fully loaded AK-47. Prosecutors also claimed that Yak Gotti had already admitted to a charge of murder conspiracy without going into detail.
Yak Gotti was deemed a threat to witnesses by Judge Ural D. Glanville, who also predicted that he would attempt to flee. Bond was not granted to him. The trial of Yak Gotti could begin as early as January 2023.
