Later, Lucci was sentenced to 10 years in prison and another 10 of probation. However, with time served dating back to January 13, 2021, he'll be eligible for parole in just a few months. The prosecution has already promised to write a letter recommending him for early release. “After three years of pretrial litigation, more than two weeks of jury selection and three years of incarceration waiting for his jury trial, today, the prosecution finally relented and dismissed the murder and RICO charges against Rayshawn Bennett,” YFN Lucci’s legal team said in a statement provided to ABC News.

Lucci's attorney, Drew Findling, also shot down rumors he'd be testifying in the YSL RICO trial outside of the courtroom. "Anybody that says that is a liar," he said. "We all just went to court today. It's clear as day. There is no corporation in the YSL case. He will not be testifying in that case. If anybody wants to subpoena him, we'll file a subpoena to squash that subpoena. He wants nothing to do with that case. He's made that clear. For three and a half years, he has said he knows nothing and will not participate in that case." Be on the lookout for further updates on YFN Lucci on HotNewHipHop.
