Bobby Shmurda Offered Plea Deal In Prison Contraband Case


(AllHipHop News) Embattled rapper Bobby Shmurda has been offered a plea deal in his prison contraband case.

The hip-hop star, real name Ackquille Pollard, was arrested in June, 2015 after he was caught in possession of a “sharpened metal instrument” while in jail.

At the time of his arrest, he was serving time in New York’s notorious Rikers Island prison, where he reportedly received the object from his girlfriend, Kimberly Rousseau.

The 22-year-old pleaded not guilty after he was indicted on perjury, weapons possession and promoting prison contraband charges in July, 2015.

If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison.

On Tuesday (December 7), an assistant district attorney offered Shmurda a deal of one to four years in prison if he agreed to plead guilty to the felony, according to reports.

The plea deal offer comes two months after Pollard was sentenced to serve seven years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon in October.

He was arrested during a police sting operation in Manhattan in 2014 and charged with counts of conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and more.

Pollard’s other charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal and he was given credit for time served.

If he accepts the new plea deal, the sentence would likely run concurrently with his seven-year sentence.

He is due back in court next month (January 17).
