A court hearing yesterday (June 25) featured the prosecution announcing Shmurda was re-arrested on Tuesday for possession of a “sharpened metal instrument” while incarcerated at Rikers Island jail. The “Hot N*gga” rhymer now has another separate felony charge for promoting prison contraband.
Shmurda and members of his GS9 crew were arrested last December. The 20-year-old born Ackquille Jean Pollard faces gang conspiracy, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment charges.
That trial is set to begin on October 5. Prosecutors have recommended an eight year sentence for Bobby. The contraband case will be tried separately in The Bronx which is the jurisdiction for Rikers.
