Pooh Shiesty is reportedly facing a minimum sentence of 20+ years if he gets convicted.
Memphis rapper Pooh Shiesty is reportedly facing a mandatory minimum sentence of twenty years after being charged with aggravated battery for his alleged role in a Miami nightclub shooting. The rapper was reportedly being escorted out of King Of Diamonds by security guards when a stack of money fell from his pants. An altercation happened and Shiesty allegedly fired his gun at the floor, which struck a security guard in the ankle.
According to lawyer Moe Gangat, the 1017-aligned artist will face a judge this week, where it will be determined whether he gets released on bond. Gangat said in a video posted to Instagram that Shiesty has a good chance at getting out. He will reportedly be facing the same judge in Florida that he previously had a few months ago. He was released on more serious charges then.
