(AllHipHop News) Former Bad Boy G. Dep was sentenced to 15 years in jail for a 1993 shooting that he confessed to in order to clear his conscience.
He’d later find that the victim of the shooting died after confessing to police in Harlem in 2010.
Tuesday a judge sentenced him to the minimum jail time for murder, an apparent act of leniency for confessing to a crime in which he was not even a suspect.
Anthony L. Ricco, G. Dep’s lawyer said the rapper received the closure he sought.
“He was in search of his redemption and his honor, and some might say that he achieved that,” Ricco said, according to the Associated Press.
G. Dep rapped alongside Sean “Diddy” Combs in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and had a hit in “Special Delivery” and “Let’s Get It.”
G. Dep has plans to appeal the verdict.
