Bobby Shmurda may be launched from jail subsequent month
Bobby Shmurda (aka Ackquille Pollard) will be released from prison next month, the New York State Department of Corrections told the New York Times. The Brooklyn rapper was denied parole in September 2020, but a review by the New York State Department of Corrections restored his credit for good behavior. He can be conditionally released from February 23rd to serve the remainder of his sentence – which ends in December – on probation.
Shmurda and his co-defendants Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall and Nicholas McCoy pleaded guilty initially to conspiracy and gun charges in September 2016, which required the participation of every man. Shmurda accepted a seven-year prison term. In 2017 he pleaded guilty to promoting contraband in prison and was sentenced to four years in prison. Rowdy Rebel was released from the Collins Correctional Facility in December and will be under community supervision until December 2025.
