In an unexpected twist, rapper Pooh Shiesty has agreed to accept a plea deal in his robbery case.
The "Back In Blood" rapper was due in court on Monday, October 25th, to start his trial for a shooting and robbery last October. However, the rapper and his road manager, co-defendant Bobby Brown, both decided to plead guilty due to recent developments in the case, though the specifics have not been disclosed.
During Thursday's hearing, defense attorney Bradford Cohen told U. S. District Judge K. Michael Moore that both men wished "to change their plea from not guilty to guilty."
Pooh Shiesty, whose real name is Lontrell Denell Williams Jr., has been behind bars since July on a four-count federal indictment stemming from the Miami incident, which was captured on surveillance footage. He previously pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors accused the 1017 rapper, Brown and third co-defendant Jayden Darosa of robbing and shooting two people at the Landon Hotel in Bay Harbor Islands during the purchase of luxury sneakers and marijuana.
The court date for October 25th has now been canceled, and it is unclear when sentencing will occur.
