Bobby Shmurda Officially Sentenced to 7 Years in Prison

Oct 20, 2016 |

After accepting a plea deal, Bobby Shmurda was officially sentenced to seven years in prison on Wednesday (Oct. 19).

Last month, Shmurda pled guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession, taking on the seven-year sentence.

“I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence,” Shmurda told the court, as per Billboard. “I was forced by my attorney to take this plea.”

Later, the “Hot Boy” rapper added: “They lied to me.” His lawyer, Alex Spiro, said his client “is clearly frustrated” and that he doesn’t fault him for it.

Despite the sentence, Shmurda doesn’t actually face seven more years in prison. Due to time served, he could be out in five years. As part of his deal, Bobby has waved rights to appeal and faces five post-release years of supervision as well.

Following last month’s plea deal, Shmurda told Complex that he accepted it for his codefendant Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall.

“I did it for Rowdy,” he said. “They offered me five [years] and offered Rowdy 12…They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven, too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs.”
