5:08 PM PT — Young Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, tells TMZ … “The Court is honorable and we respect its rulings. Justice will not be denied.”
Thug’s lawyer adds …”We are totally focused on preparation for our upcoming trial and we remain steadfast in our efforts to defend Mr. Williams against these false allegations.”
Young Thug sat in an Atlanta courtroom on Thursday only to be denied bond again in his ongoing YSL Rico case.
Thug’s lawyer, Brian Steel, informed the court the rapper was willing to comply with a 24-hour home confinement and argued the prosecution was creating a false narrative by using 2014 lyrics as evidence, but that still wasn’t enough to sway the judge.
As for the prosecution, they referred to Thugger as the “General” of the entire YSL regime, and believe he should remain locked up.
This makes Thug’s third bond denial since he was arrested back in May, and at this rate, he will be behind bars until at least January.
Young Thug and Gunna have both been behind bars — part of a 28-count indictment — which included weapons and drugs charges. There were even allegations YT was tied to possible shootings and murders.
