(AllHipHop News) The son of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond recently sat down with AllHipHop.com to discuss his father’s cocaine trial, which is currently taking place in Federal Court in Brooklyn, New York.
Rosemond Jr., who celebrated a birthday over the holiday weekend, remains optimistic and convinced of his father’s innocence.
James Rosemond, Sr., who managed acts like Sean Kingston, Game, Mike Tyson, Akon, and others, is facing a life sentence for allegedly masterminding a $10 million-a-year cocaine operation.
“I am blessed to celebrate another year, but at the same time my heart is heavy,” James “Lil Henchman” Rosemond told AllHipHop.com. “If I had one wish, it would be to have my father free and home with me and my little sisters.”
The elder Rosemond was arrested in June 2011 on cocaine distribution charges, after a 30-day, nationwide manhunt.
“It’s been a year since we have had to hear lie after lie about my dad, but mind you all, I know the truth because I lived with him,” added Lil Hench, who has attended each day of testimony since the trial began on May 14.
Although his father is charged with serious crimes, Lil Henchman said that his dad raised him well and helped him better his life.
“I am who I am today because of my dad. I am enrolled in college because of my dad,” Lil Hench told AllHipHop.com.
“I have experienced different cultures and learned to give back because of my dad. I want to dedicate my birthday today with ‘Free James Rosemond’ and a birthday wish of him returning home to his family. Love you dad, and we are going to fight this fight!”
Testimony continues today (May 29).
