(AllHipHop News) A representative for incarcerated Hip-Hop mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has responded to recent news that he has been indicted for a 2009 murder.
Rosemond is currently incarcerated in a federal prison in Brooklyn awaiting sentencing, after he was convicted on 13 charges on June 4, relating to cocaine distribution charges.
Rosemond, who is facing a life sentence in October, was indicted on Friday (June 22), for the September 2009 murder of a man named Lowell Fletcher.
Lowell Fletcher was an associate of 50 Cent, Tony Yayo and G-Unit.
He was also a top leader of a faction of The Bloods gang street gang in Far Rockaway, Queens.
Fletcher, aka Lodi Mack, was involved in an infamous incident, in which Tony Yayo allegedly smacked Rosemond’s son as they left the offices of Violator Management, which handles the career of 50 Cent.
“This new indictment is no surprise, we heard it was a possibility,” Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez told AllHipHop.com. “Again his family and supporters are standing by Jimmy and we’ll let his attorneys do their job.”
Both Lowell Fletcher and Tony Yayo pleaded guilty to the crime of striking Rosemond’s son.
Fletcher served two years for the incident and unrelated charges, in addition to the ultimate price – his life.
Tony Yayo addressed the incident on the track “Straight Outta Southside” from the album T.O.S.: Terminate On Site.
Federal prosecutors will not seek the death penalty against James Rosemond for the murder of Lowell Fletcher.
