Bobby Shmurda has also landed a new bail hearing.
Bobby Shmurda (real name Ackquille Pollard) is still awaiting trial for 2014 charges of conspiracy, weapons, and narcotics, appearing for a pre-trial hearing today. The rapper was joined by Rowdy Rebel (real name Chad Marshall), Santino Broderick, Alex Crandon, and Rashid Derrisant in court, and was represented by recently hired lawyer Alex Spiro.
According to a report from FADER, Spiro secured a new bail hearing for the rapper (scheduled for January 19th), as well as asking for a file of "incident reports and arrests" on Pollard's record. He also requested background on the officers involved in each run-in, alleging that the officers may have "burdensome files".
Pollard's trial is set to begin February 22nd, but if his bail hearing goes well, there is still the possibility he could be released from his incarceration beforehand.
