(AllHipHop News) A former gangster who renounced his membership in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and was stabbed as a result, is challenging his recent conviction.
Less than a week after receiving his four-year sentence, Roland “Ro Murda” Martin is going to appeal Judge Paul Englemayer’s decision.
Ro Murda has hired a defense attorney named Michael S. Schachter to help him mount an appeal of the lengthy prison sentence.
Schachter is a partner at the law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher who has represented some big clients, including a high profile case involving an Adidas executive involved in an NCAA recruitment strategy.
Last week, Roland “Ro Murda” Martin was sentenced to four years in prison for his involvement in a RICO case the Feds brought against Tekashi 6ix9ine and 11 other members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Ro Murda was convicted for his role committing crimes for the gang on behalf of Tekashi 6ix9ine and threatening the disgraced rapper’s rivals with violence.
On October 10th, Judge Paul Englemayer gave the former Nine Trey member 90 months, but he shaved 24 months off of Ro Murda’s sentence because he was stabbed several times in prison for leaving the gang.
Ro Murda is the second man charged in the RICO case to appeal his verdict.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan also hired a high-powered attorney who represented El Chapo to appeal his 15-year sentence.
