Jimmy Henchman's lawyer speaks up about the reports circulating the internet that Henchman admitted to taking part in the '94 Tupac shooting.
Following the news initiallyÂ reported by journalist Chuck Phillips, which said that Jimmy Henchman had admitted toÂ involvementÂ in the 1994 shooting of Tupac, Henchman's publicist denied Henchman had ever admitted such things.
Now Jimmy Henchman's lawyer also responds to these reports, affirming what Henchman's publicist says.
Henchman's attorney, Gerald Shargel,Â spoke to MTV News to clear up the confusion surrounding the trial testimony.Â Â "The statement by the prosecutor that Jimmy Rosemond had confessed or admitted to being involved in the 1994 shooting of Tupac is totally false," he said. "He categorically and emphatically denied that he had participation or role in that shooting and that was clear from the outset."
"Anyone looking at the statements or knows of the statements would know that [Rosemond] didn't make that admission and more than didn't make the admission, he categorically, absolutely, emphatically without any qualification whatsoever denied being a part of that," ShargelÂ said. "We stand by it to this day."
