YSL member Gunna released after pleading guilty to RICO charge

Gunna has been released from jail after agreeing to an appealing deal that will credit him with the time he spent in prison.

According to WSB-TV, the YSL artist have been guilty of a racketeering conspiracy charge when he was back in court for a virtual hearing session yesterday 14 December.

Gunna and his legal team entered an Alford request where he entreats guilty to one charge because it was in his best stake to do so as far as his release goes.

As a result, Gunna was condemned to five years with one operating in prison where he’s been since being captured in May as part of the YSL indictment headlined by Young Thug. The four-year penalty left will be “suspended” and Gunna will serve the remains in the form of ''500 hours'' of community service.

Gunna spoke to WSB-TV in a report that he had never seen YSL as a gang. “While I have agreed to always be truthful, I want to make it clear that I have NOT made any statements, have NOT been interviewed, have NOT cooperated, have NOT agreed to testify or be a witness for or against any party in the case and have NO intention of being involved in the trial process in any way,”

“My focus of YSL was entertainment — rap artists who wrote and performed music that exaggerated and ‘glorified’ urban life in the Black community.”
