Young Thug has probably been spending an increasing amount of time preparing for his upcoming trial in January 2023 related to the 56-count YSL gang charge. Young Thug and his lawyer Brian Steel appear to be putting their affairs in order as the YSL RICO trial draws nearer in an effort to win the rapper his freedom back.

The “Day Before” performer, who was denied bond and must remain in jail until January 2023, is claimed to be in high spirits. He even found time to express his love for his rumoured girlfriend Mariah The Scientist and the late PnB Rock on his Twitter feed.

According to AllHipHop, the latest update from Thugger’s case revealed that he’s filed a motion requesting that the overseeing judge rule to suppress some statements he made while in police custody during an involuntary interrogation. The Atlanta native’s lawyer claimed that law enforcement officers interrogated his client in the Dekalb County Jail despite him never having waived his Miranda rights.

According to Steel, Cobb County Investigator David Raissi and ATF Special Agent T. Cunningham placed the rapper in an interrogation room without his legal counsel’s permission, knowledge, or consent. The court filing obtained by the outlet said that,

“All of [Young Thug’s] statements must be suppressed from the trial in the above-referenced case, and all witnesses must be instructed not to utter the fact that [Young Thug] made any statements which were not voluntarily made, were made in violation of his Constitutional right to counsel and made in violation of Miranda warning,” 

“Additionally, no mention can be made that [Young Thug] was given the opportunity to speak with law enforcement since this is post-arrest.”

The 31-year-old has also asked the judge to return computers and phones that were taken from his Sandy Springs, Georgia home in July 2015 after he was charged with a felony. Ultimately, the end goal of this filing is for Judge Ural Glanville to suppress any statement Thug made during the aforementioned interrogation, as well as any evidence that may have come from his phones, hard drives, and computers.
