Instead of going to trial, which was set to begin on Monday, Ackquille Pollard, aka Bobby Shmurda, and two co-defendants, Chad “Rowdy Rebel” and Nicholas McCoy, accepted a plea deal from the prosecution today (Sept. 9), thus agreeing to serve 7 years in prison.
In accepting the deal, Shmurda has pled guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy, reports Billboard, as well as a 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession. The conspiracy charge carries a sentence of 1-3 years, whereas the weapons charge comes with a sentence of 7 years. Shmurda will be allowed to serve the two sentences simultaneously, so as of now, he is faced with a maximum sentence of 7 years. Along with the time in prison, he will also be subjected to 5 years probation.
