G. Dep, who confessed to murdering an innocent man in 2010, has now been convicted of murder for shooting a man while robbing him at gunpoint in 1993.

Although G. Dep believed he had been linked to the wrong victim in the trial, he could face 15 years-to-life for killing 32 year-old John Henkel. Upon hearing the verdict G. Dep hugged his lawyer, Anthony Ricco.

Ricco says of the former Bad Boy Records rapper, "He has a conscience and a heart, and his conscience and his heart brought him to where he is today. He’s probably making the most powerful statement a rapper of his era can make, which is to be accountable and to do the right thing."

"Eighteen years ago, the defendant made a calculated decision to steal from, shoot, and kill an innocent person on the street," said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr.

G.Dep will be sentenced on May 8th.
