Lil Durk Proclaims His Innocence
For now, Lil Durk will remain in jail.
The Chi-Town rapper was charged earlier this week with the unlawful use of a weapon for a pair of guns. He says they weren’t his.
Because of previous gun charges, Durk will remain incarcerated.
Today the rapper appeared in court and seemed optimistic . He waved to his wife and kids who appeared to support him.
“He’s not guilty. He’s happy his family was here supporting him but not happy being here,” his wife told the Chicago Tribune.
Police charge that Durk had a Glock .45 caliber handgun and a Springfield .45-caliber handgun, both of which were loaded with 10 rounds. His lawyer sprung to his defense in court stating, “In three weeks, he was going on a world tour. Nine people were present these guns could have been theirs.”
The rapper was reportedly planning for the release of his first album, Remember My Name.
