WATCH: Video Shows Gunna’s Release From Jail
Written by B87FM on December 14, 2022
Shortly after Gunna pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge, the rapper was released from jail on Wednesday (Dec. 14), allowing him to return home after seven months behind bars.
The “Pushin P” rapper was spotted leaving the Fulton County Jail in a black hoodie, with a woman walking beside him. He appeared to smile as he walked out to a vehicle, clearly excited to be free again.
Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, issued a press statement around the time of his release. In it, the 29-year-old made it clear that he hasn’t agreed to testify against any other person in the case.
Detailing his involvement with YSL, he penned, “When I became affiliated with YSL in 2016, I did not consider it a ‘gang’; more like a group of people from metro Atlanta who had common interests and artistic aspirations.”
“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 later claimed in the statement.
Gunna also shared that he entered an Alford plea in the RICO case. According to Cornell Law School, it essentially translates to “a formal admission of guilt towards charges in criminal court while the defendant simultaneously expresses their innocence toward those same charges.”
“I love and cherish my association with YSL music, and always will,” the “Drip Too Hard” artist also wrote.
Young thug’s New Charges
Meanwhile, it appears that Young Thug will remain in jail until his trial kicks off next month.
As HotNewHipHop reported earlier this week, the “Best Friend” rapper was recently charged with reckless driving, speeding, and street racing. He already faced several federal charges in the RICO case. Prior to his arrest, he allegedly drove 120 MPH while joyriding on Interstate 85.
