Bobby Shmurda, Rowdy Rebel and 13 other members of their GS9 crew have been behind bars for just over 4 months now, and they will remain there for some time. Appearing before a judge in New York today, both Bobby and Rowdy were given a June 25 hearing to begin their trial. As for the rest of GS9, they will be broken down into 4 or 5 smaller groups so as to accommodate the space of the court rooms. As the two with the most on the line, however, Bobby and Rowdy’s respective lawyers pushed to have their clients in the first group.
In the meantime, both are still being held at Riker’s Island on $2 million bail, and though there is always a chance to be bailed out, Bobby’s lawyer isn’t entirely optimistic.
In an interview with XXL the day before the trial, Kenneth Montgomery said:
People have to understand that his bail is $2 million. He’s not a multi-millionaire, so for his bail to be that, any potential suitors must be a good fit. Whoever comes in has to be the right fit. If we can get someone who’s the right fit, of course it could happen.
He also added that he firmly believes the bail will not be lowered.
