Duck Down Records artist Rock, of the group Heltah Skeltah, is set to appear in court in Brooklyn, NY tomorrow (Jan 18) to find out if he will be indicted on second degree attempted murder and related charges, his lawyer Kenneth Montgomery told AllHipHop.com.
According to Montgomery, Rock is currently is being held by the New York City Department of Corrections on $125,000 bond, while his family, friends and label mates are putting together his bail package.
“My investigators tell me that the alleged victim is currently in custody on some sort of parole hold,” Montgomery added, “so I actually believe he will be indicted tomorrow. This case will go to trial, probably sometime around September.”
Rock, born Jamal Bush, was arrested and arraigned on Tuesday (Jan 15).
“The Brooklyn District Attorneys office alleges that Mr. Bush shot a known pimp and Bloods gang member in the neck, paralyzing him,” Montgomery said. “They also allege that Mr. Bush is a pimp and this was a dispute over an alleged lady of the night. Mr. Bush categorically and unequivocally deny all charges. We eagerly look forward to trial and proving his innocence.”
