(AllHipHop News) The jury in the James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond murder trial entered into deliberations this week, and the jurors have already returned with verdicts for Henchman’s co-defendant Rodney Johnson.
According to XXL, Johnson was convicted of conspiracy to distribute narcotics, weapons possession related to drug trafficking, and felony firearm possession. These charges were separate from the additional murder and conspiracy counts he shares with Henchman.
Henchman is accused of working with Johnson to carry out a murder-for-hire plot that killed G-Unit associate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher. Prosecutors believed that Fletcher was killed as part of a violent feud between Henchman and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s G-Unit crew.
Several former affiliates of the drug enterprise known as “The Rosemond Organization” testified against Henchman with the hopes of having their own sentences for murder and drug convictions reduced. They alleged that Henchman was behind the scheme to have Fletcher murdered and attempts to harm 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, manager Chris Lighty, and others associated with G-Unit.
