Gunna’s lawyer has issued a statement refusing the ongoing allegations that his client cooperated with authorities in the YSL RICO case.
Sergio Kitchens, also known as Gunna, was freed from prison in December after entering an Alford plea and pleaded guilty to a charge of racketeering conspiracy.
Gunna was sentenced to five years with one year served due to the time he spent behind bars after being arrested last May as part of the extensive indictment against YSL, which prosecutors claims is a “criminal street gang.”
Due to the time he spent in jail following his arrest in May of last year as part of the extensive indictment against YSL, which the prosecutor claims is a “criminal street gang,” he was given a sentence of five years with one year served.
The DS4Ever rapper has been accused of snitching on people repeatedly since entering a plea deal, but he has maintained his innocence throughout the entire process.
“While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it perfectly clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have absolutely NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,” he said in a statement following his release from jail.
Rappers and fans have been discussing Gunna’s plea agreement, and after an article on Okayplayer interviewed legal professionals to analyze Alford pleas, Gunna’s legal team responded to the piece and confirmed their client’s innocence, stating he “never” cooperated with authorities.
“Gunna has never been interviewed by or cooperated with law enforcement or prosecutors in the RICO case,” the statement read. “Nor have his attorneys proffered information on his behalf.”
They continued, “What was said at his Alford plea hearing was solely to resolve his own case. It cannot be used by the prosecution against Young Thug or any other defendant.”
After getting out of jail, Gunna has kept a low profile, but that hasn’t prevented people from making fun of him for his alleged snitching.
