G. Dep will be serving a fifteen-year sentence in prison for murder in the second degree.
The verdict for G. Dep is in. The former Bad Boy rapper has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, for a murder he committed back in 1993. He confessed to the murder two years ago, when he walked into the Harlem precinct.
The sentence was the lowest allowed by law, and Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said of the sentence, "The circumstance of your being before the court now suggests to me a maturity and decency that wouldn't have been evident at the time," he continued, "It was the right thing to do, even though it landed you in the position you find yourself in now.Â
G. Dep's lawyer commented on the sentence, saying, "My hope is that Trevell never wavers from his decision.Â Fifteen years is a long time. Fifteen years in the penitentiary for putting yourself there is an even longer time."
